2005 Chevrolet Uplander Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
We just bought our Uplander today and it has 78,000 miles. We love how great the gas mileage is, averaging almost 19 mpg in a van is amazing!! It drives very smooth, i can feel the shift from 1st gear to second gear but its not bad. The fit and finish is excellent, i was surprized. The seats seem to stain easy. Everything works great in it, the a/c seems kind of under
powered but not too bad. It rides very comfortably, its not mushy and not like a buckboard. I am hoping to get 150,000 miles out of it. The only thing that *bothers* me, if you could even call it a bother, is the rattling noises the interior makes, its not bad though. Over all i love it!! im am NOT a chevy fan..but GO CHEVY!!!
The exterior design is epic looking, it looks like an SUV. Very solidly built. VERY QUIET INTERIOR!!, i was surprised how quiet it is. I cranked the car and thought it was stalled out cause i couldnt hear the engine even running. The brakes seem to be good for a van. And the DVD player even in the base package is a major plus!!
Ummm...fewer rattles, cupholders in mid row. A little more power, but because of mediocre power it gets GREAT MPGS!!
