2002 GMC Savana 3500 3dr Ext Van (5.7L 8cyl 4A)


Air-con, excellent, when in SE
US. Rear air-con is 3 rows of
vents, Dodge and Ford is less. Leg
room better than Ford. Noise is low.
155 inch wheel base is nice on the
extended 15 passenger van. When not
heavily loaded less pressure in rear
the rear tires makes passengers more
comfortable. Tires that come with the
van are very stable for side
movements. Break in period before
towing is 9,000 or 11,000 miles.
Service is low, one change of the rear-
end oil, and at oil change the grease
points/zerks. The undercarriage is
super for this 1-ton vehicle which is
one reason I chose this vehicle. The
standard engine is a 350 and power
wise is great.

Best Features

The view above traffic is great for smooth driving. The air-cond is fine in humid SE US. Power, good cruising. Captains chairs, good. Plenty of room for the legs to the side for a big person, Ford is narrow. My petite 16 daughter can drive the van with no problem operating the pedals.

Worst Features

The vent/air is supposedly in recirculate position fumes and smell from outside come in the vehicle. Differenet rims would rid the beauty rings. I wouldn't mind space to install electric fans for additional cooling for traffic and needing to idle in hot temperatures for air-con.
