Looking for advice on a Chevy Express 1500 van for short term, full time living.
It wouldn’t be my first choice because of the gas mileage, but I’m living in a place with minimal housing options for my summer job, so I need to find something fast!
I’m eyeing a 2011 with 153,000 miles (goes for $10k). It’s been looked at by a mechanic and seems like it runs well and has had work done recently (brakes replaced). It’s half converted already with insulation and a bed platform.
As I don’t know the next thing about cars, I’m curious if anyone has experience with these vans that can tell me about their reliability. Is it a money pit, or reliable at this mileage? What are some common issues? I plan to road trip in it as well.
Any thoughts are appreciated, thank you!!
