2012 Chevrolet Express
2012 Chevrolet Express
Although the Express can be converted into an extralarge family hauler, the truth is that, with the emergence of minivans in the 1980s and the current infatuation with SUVs and crossovers, full-size vans have for some time been relegated to a life of labor. This is no bad thing, though, because the Express is an indispensable workhorse that can be configured to suit almost any need. There are five engine choices, three trims, two lengths, rear- or four-wheel drive, and light-duty (1500) and heavy-duty models (2500, 3500). While light-duty models have to make do with an archaic four-speed transmission, HD models feature a fairly modern six-speed automatic, helping fuel economy slightly. The Express's fully boxed frame means that it's a superior towing vehicle -- even light-duty models are capable of towing 6200 pounds. Interior accommodations are spartan at best, and driving dynamics are about what you'd expect from a van that is meant primarily for carrying stuff rather than people. This may come as a shock, but the full-size van roster has grown by a third this year with the introduction of the Nissan NV. The NV is more refined and comes with a wider selection of options, but it's only available as a high-roof commercial vehicle and can't be configured as a passenger van. Still, it costs less and may give the old standbys a run for their money. If nothing else, we hope Chevy takes a good look at the NV and decides to work on refining the Express's creature comforts and driving dynamics.

FUEL SYSTEM, OTHER
Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) and IMPCO Automotive Division of IMPCO Technologies, Inc. (IMPCO) are recalling certain model year 2011-2013 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana Cargo vans that have a compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel system installed as original equipment by IMPCO. The fuel systems, manufactured February 14, 2011, through February 20, 2013, have a fuel shut-off solenoid connector to the CNG tank that may corrode and form a short.
Consequences
A short at the connector may cause overheating, resulting in an increased risk of fire.
Remedy
GM will notify owners and GM dealers/fleets will perform the remedy which will include replacing the solenoid assemblies and fuel pump fuses and adjusting the wiring routing. The recall began on August 5, 2013. GM's number for this recall is 13139. Impco's number for this recall is FA13GM001. Owner's may contact GM Fleet Action Center at 1-800-353-3867.

AIR BAGS:FRONTAL
Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2009-2014 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana vans manufactured January 27, 2009, through March 7, 2014 with a gross vehicle weight rating of 10,000 pounds and less and equipped with front passenger air bags. In the affected vehicles, during a frontal impact below the air bag deployment threshold, if an unbelted front passenger's head hits the instrument panel above where the passenger air bag is located, the panel may not sufficiently absorb the impact. As such, these vehicles fail to meet the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 201, "Occupant Protection in Interior Impact."
Consequences
In the event of a crash below the air bag deployment threshold, an unbelted front passenger seat occupant has an increased risk of injury.
Remedy
GM will notify owners, and dealers will modify the passenger instrument panel free of charge. Notices to the owners of the heavy duty vans were mailed on April 28, 2014. The recall began on May 19, 2014. Chevrolet owners may call 1-800-630-2438. GMC owners may call 1-866-996-9463. GM's number for this recall is 14082.
