1998 Chevrolet Express G1500 LS 3dr Van


With a growing family, I hesitantly
decided to purchase a full size van
versus going mini again or Suburban.
The deciding factor was cargo room. I
have no regrets. I comfortably fit the
whole family plus I have 4.5 feet of
cargo room behind the rear bench that
makes travel very nice (no car-top
carrier anymore). My van has the 5.0
V8, which is smooth and has lots of
power. Towing up 5000 lbs is no
problem. The transmission is very
smooth for a GM product. Mileage with
the 5.0 is about 15/18. This van has
never been in the shop for repairs (one
body repair – see below) and it’s
approaching 60000. I and my wife both
love it.

Best Features

Strong engine/transmission. ABS with good tires makes winter driving easy. Rear heat/AC is a MUST. Has been very reliable. All the Power, seating, towing of a Suburban plus more storage for about 1/2 the cost. I love that!

Worst Features

One negative must be pointed out. Rear and side doors have exterior hinges which I have had to replace because the pins have rusted and seized. This is just plain bad design.
