1993 Chevrolet Chevy Van 3 Dr G20 Cargo Van Review

Love It. — This is the Party Van! My dad bought the van back in 1993 new and its been with us ever since. While not technically mine yet, I just took over as caretaker. The van is a G20 Chevy Van with a Mark III conversion package. At 18 years and counting, it has its share of squeaks and rattles, mostly due to the conversion modifications. The tranny is noisy, which is amplified by the engine sharing the compartment with you. The van itself, based on 1970's technology, is remarkably durable. My dad blew the 350 @ 50K miles and had it replaced. Nothing else has ever needed major work. The controls are definitely old-school, my kids are vexed by the 90 era radio, but your talking pull-out light switches and 1970's truck interior door handles too. Gas mileage is not good, about 11-14 MPG, and maintaining the conversion package comes into play. As far as fun, it's the Party Van! While you have to drive it like a tall 6000lb vehicle, its fun to drive. And it attracts fans wherever I go.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Even at 18, its still a great family cruiser!

Cons: The van itself is old school, but extremely durable, but the conversion package requires special maintenance.

Best Vehicle I've Owned! — The vehicle gets pretty decent gas mileage for its size. It can tow up to 9,000 pounds without any problems. I get about 10.5 mpg when I tow my 4,500 camper. I get 13 mpg city and 16 mpg highway. It only has about 138,500 miles on it and drives like she is brand new. She has 7 seats (legal ones of course). With enough leg room in between each row to extend your legs all the way out. Plus it has tons of cargo space even after 7 people are inside. Screw those minivans.

Pros: MOST EVERYTHING!

Cons: Not too much.

Good Overall Workhorse Van. — A solid workhorse of a van. Make sure you check and change the oil (and filter) regularly, as well as maintain the brakes. This should be done on any vehicle, especially older ones. I didn't rate the back seats or family car high as I use my van for transporting and courier type work and have removed them to allow for greater cargo space.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Very useful for General Contractor or making use of the cargo space.  Overall a very reliable van with a reasonable price tag.

Cons: I bought mine used, so I had to make several mechanical and electrical fixes to get it running at the level of performance I like to maintain in my vehicles.  The handling is good for an older van, but not great.  The brakes can be slightly troublesome, depending on the type of brake you have.

Hard to get at the back four spark plugs and wires (and distributor cap) to replace without hoisting up.  Best way to get at the plugs and wires seems to be from inside the van.
