Pros: Comfortable seats on long trips with plenty of room
Cons: Gas mileage
Advice: Find clean low mileage model, worth it despite the gas mileage.This is a Explorer Conversion. Many nice creature features. 14mpg in town 18 hiway. Rides nice. 50,000 miles tho and doors don't fit tight and there are numerous cabin squeaks. Mechanically vehicle holding up well. Very good vacation car, not good running errands around town. A nice used conversion van doesn't cost much if you can find one.
Cons: breaking down all the time
Advice: do not buyvery bad
Pros: Bucket seats (25.00 option), and excellent ride quality
Cons: Manual windows, hand hits seat when opening/closing them.
Advice: Go for power windows/locks, cruise control and tilt wheel.Excellent work truck. Plenty of power and smooth ride (when not towing). Lots of understeer, so be careful until you are used to it. Definately buy cruise control, holding a steady speed is a challenge. If you plan to tow, get the factory towing package as adding lights and trailer brakes takes awhile without the factory installed wiring harness.
Pros: My favorite feature is the front and real AC controls and also the electric driver and passanger seats.
Cons: The shoulder strap seat belts on the back rows make it a little difficult to enter and exit the vehicle.
Advice: This van is a great purchase. I would advise that you buy it. It has plenty of interior space and is very comfortable.This vehicle was bought to be used by our church. We have been getting great compliments on the comfort and feel of the vehicle. There is one negative comment we have had. That is that the side steps are too high.
Cons: This van has more rattles than a baby!
Advice: Do not buy this vehicle, buy the Ford. They are built better.Very comfortable loaded for highway trips. Pulls a large trailer with no problem. Needs gas very often! Chevrolet thinks it is fine that this vehicle gets 10mpg in city or highway driving.( been in the shop 7 times in 7 months!)
Pros: V6 Engine
Cons: The Dealer
Advice: Finance before you get to the dealerGreat work truck. Very comfortable ride empty or full. Ready for 200,000 miles at least.
