"We've used this van as our family vehicle for 7 years. It's been great for hauling a lot of people and towing our motorcycles, etc. It's not super plush with a lot of extras, but when it screams up a hill full of people while hauling our gear you truly appreciate the power the 6.0 liter V-8 engine has to offer. I'm selling my Express van now, but I will be sorry to see it go."
"I've had 3 others just like this 12 passenger van. You can use it to haul people, stuff or a combination of that. The seats are easy to get in and out and removing them, it turns into a cargo van, but it is insulated and thus low sound. Chevy hasn't changed the style in years that is good and bad. While it would be nice to see it updated, the fact is if you want function, this is a great van. You can still fit in most parking garages, car washes, drive thru windows etc. Others have gone to a high profile van, which means I can only buy a Chevy because the low profile is important for reasons stated above. Relative to other vehicles, I think the MPG is very good - 15 around town, 17+ on the road."
"Every 5,000 miles I change the oil, rotate tires and service whatever else needs service. Over 1 million starts and still has the original starter. It's never failed me, and I'm sure I can get another 400K out of it. Best vehicle I've ever owned."
