1996 GMC Savana G2500 3dr Ext Van


Have liked the vehicle very much, lots of space for large family to travel, comfortable, nice ride, good performance, reliable, low maintenance, nice Santa Fe conversion package. Only problem in 10 years, fuel pump went out close to 100,000 miles. Had one transmission pandrop and normal oil changes, on first muffler and no exhaust work. Have to replace brakes more often than ought (not heavy duty enough for the large vehicle) lots to power and drain battery, what is expected w/ TV/VCP, radio/CD/cassette players, lots interior lights? Most wear and tear due to large family, years/high miles-oops mom scraped the running boards-can't see low in rear, careful in reverse, so use side mirrors!

Best Features

Comfortable, roomy, nice ride, good steering and pretty conversion/leather package. Stereo sound not greatest with speakers in doors, can live with

Worst Features

Heavier duty brakes which seems most of maintenance. What about that fuel pump? If that is only problem outside of tire/battery replacement, oil/brake changes in 10 years-not bad. Improve the fuel efficiency on large, V-8, raised roof vehicle? Oh-having problem w/ driver power window now???
