The 2005 Chevrolet Express 1500 is an easy van to maintain. The brake fluid reservoir has open access to both its cap and level markers, allowing you to replenish the reservoir whenever necessary. The transmission fluid reservoir also allows for reliable monitoring, with a dipstick that is easy to remove and simple to read. The engine air filter can be changed without a problem, as no tools are needed to remove its cover and the filter itself slides out with ease.
However, the 2005 Chevrolet Express 1500 has its downsides. The center brake light is not an LED bulb and will require more maintenance over time. The engine coolant reservoir will need to be removed in order to access the battery bracket, which can be a problematic procedure. The spare tire is stored underneath the vehicle, where it runs the risk of rusting to the undercarriage, hampering the reliability of servicing a flat.
