    GMC Savana vans

    300K miles on our 2K Ford E-150 van
    Still runs great and nothing wrong except some body rot.

    Have found several Savana 2500 vans for sale mostly late models 2017 mostly Most under 10K miles. Decent prices

    Anybody have any experiences with them.

    Good vehicles. I’ve had several GM vans for work for many years. The vast majority of them only got the normal maintenance. I would have them again.

    Thanks for the info

    Drove home a 2017 Saavana 2500 cargo van with 12K miles on it. Everything except remote start. Was sold new 10-5-2017 in AZ and returned to Iowa by some snowbird. Clean as a new one.

    I work on both at my job, certainly more Fords than Chevys/GMCs but if I were in the market now a days, I'd definitely go GM on this one.
    I've had a couple vans, much older models over the years (carbureted) you can probably guess what brand I had, miss em both..... that kind of "318" was awfully tough to beat....

    Thought I would post a followup after ~ 7K miles

    No problems. It's my daily driver and farm truck. Plenty of room to drive a JD455 with QH, blade and mower deck in the back door to move it from Quincy to the IA farm.

    In March we drove to Lumberton, MS and back loaded with our middle ages tent and all the usual camp gear for a week long event.

    Just returned from a two week trip to New Castle PA via Wheeling. Again no problems in the low mountains and big hills. The 6 speed trans did a lot of shifting as I suspected it would. Same load out for two weeks of primitive camping at a middle ages war event.

    Getting 16 to 17 MPG on the highway and slightly less in town. Happy owner

    Wife just traded a 06 Camery LE in for a 18 LE, she is happy now. Spending the kid's inheritance.

    I do business ocassionally with a guy that runs a courier service. He buys Gm vans with the 5.3 engine. He typically gets 400k miles or more on them.
    One of them had about 600k on it when he retired it.

    I drive a 2015 daily as my work vehicle and it's a 4.8L only thing I truly dislike is the transmission, 4 spd is so outdated never understand why it took GM so long to get a decent gearbox. I can eek out 17 mpg but as soon as I add steel and equipment or compound the it starts sliding down.
