GMC Savanna - A nice ride
By Northern Driver on
Vehicle2003 GMC Savana 1500 AWD 3dr Van (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
ReviewMy Savanna is a conversion that looks
and performs up to expectations and
turns heads. I would not have
purchased one of these vans based on
standard features/factory trim. The
dashboard and interiors are too flat
and plasticky and the bumpers/mirrors
are black plastic. Both of these
detractions were remedied by the
conversion - wood dash trim and
painted bumpers/mirrors. The ride is
very stable and makes the van much
more akin to daily driving. My old
Astro AWD had a best of 20 mpg, while
the Savanna gets 18-19 mpg top end.
The braking is very good and the
engine performance is excellent.
Best FeaturesDual 60/40 door option, Excellent headroom and plenty of floorspace for whatever you can dream up! Unique front-end styling, AWD option. More room in the engine compartment/smaller doghouse. This van has excellent rain gutters running above the door/window seams.
Worst FeaturesMust have painted bumper/mirrors, must enhance dash to resemble the Astro with cockpit style/woodtrim options. Should have rear dutch-doors w/top lift-gate to give you rain/snow protection when loading and eliminate obstruction of rearview where the rear doors meet in the middle.
