Cons: "Cargo door hinges are lousey, not replacable"

"Overall I wished that I kept my Ford Cargo Van. While the GMC runs well, it's ergonomic set up is sub par. First annoying issue is the doors do not open as far as the Ford, the footing area for the driver is cramped. The ride is good as is the power. Huge gas tank, and milage is around 17mpg, loaded, with a trailer drops milage to 12mpg. Visability is good. White paint started coming off the van in different spots, the hood is devoid of most paint. side door hinges are stiff, feels like they are going to snap off at some point. After owning both Ford and GMC, I'd go with a Ford hands down."

Good quality van.

"I purchase the van in 2006. It is dependable, and reliable. Regular maintenance and clean as with all vans. Front hood does have a paint issue. But other then that is has been a workhorse."

"No complaints other than it's a gas guzzler. Very reliable, even more so then the past 5.7 liter Express vans that i have owned. I haven't had to do much other than the routine oil changes, tune-ups, and a brake job. I never had to replace the fuel pump like i have on the others. I bought this van with 213000 and have put almost another 150000. Great van, even with the 15 mpg."
