2005 Chevrolet Uplander LT Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
Ours has 2,200 miles. It has a much quieter engine than our previous '98 Olds Silhouette, with great acceleration and gas mileage. Little road noise. Superior handling. The ride is a little on the firm side, but very controlled. Very attractive exterior styling--many believe it's an SUV. The interior is good too. Driver controls are well designed and positioned. However, black on white radio display is harder to read than green on black. Also, the smaller speedometer numbers are harder to read. It seems that the driver's "leg well" is narrower than the former model. Also, leg room for second row captain's chairs seems less. Conclusion: an excellent vehicle and value -- vast improvement over former model. Highly recommend.
Daytime running lights and automatic on/off headlights that give great vision. Interior roof rail system. Driver controls and driver information system. Folding consoles. XM radio. Rear parking assist.
Radio display not easy to read in daylight. Speedometer gets hard to read at dusk before automatic headlights turn on the dashboard lights. Same at dawn. Why was the front passenger assist hand strap removed? Add a power lift gate.
