2003 Chevrolet Express 2500 Rwd 3dr Van (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


I bought this vehicle to haul our six kids around, and had many problems due to poor GM quality (just get it through the bumper-to-bumper wty). For over $30,000 you don't get much for your money except a big 6.0L V8 engine: no rear cupholders, no rear headrests, rear bench seats uncomfortable for adults, poor fit and finish, and plastic parts break easily. Even with rear A/C it struggles to keep cool on 90 degree days. OEM tires needed replacing at less than 30K miles. Been recalled three times. Problems before 36K miles: radio failed, plastic window latch broke, door switch broke, door latch broke. Front bearings separated at 37K miles. A/C leak at 38K, rotors warped at 40K, window switch fail at 42K

Best Features

Lots of passing power but only 14 mpg on a good day.

Worst Features

Cupholders and headrests for rear. Better A/C. Diesel option. Quality workmanship. Less flimsy plastic. More storage. Rear power outlet. Shoulder belts for all seating positions. Better seats. Quieter exhaust.
