AutoPacific Inc., an automotive consulting firm based in Tustin, CA, recently named both the GMC Savana and Chevy Express as the best full-size vans for the 2001 model year. The vehicles tied for the top spot in the full-size van segment, according to AutoPacific’s VSS (Vehicle Satisfaction Survey), which the firm uses to gather data on new-vehicle buyer and lessee satisfaction. Additionally, the Cadillac DeVille claimed the top spot in the luxury car segment, snatching the crown from Lexus, last year’s winner. VSS ratings record satisfaction with vehicles overall, as well as with some 40 features important to a vehicle’s operation, comfort and safety. Ratings reflect input from more than 34,000 owners of new 2001 vehicles acquired September-November 2000.
