Disappointed with Chevy

2005 Chevrolet Uplander Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

Review

The door locks on the Uplander are programmed to open when you shift into park. Chevy claims this is a safety feature and cannot be changed. Any mother with children will know that this is in no way a safety feature. It is ridiculous to suggest that doors unlocking are for my personal safety or for that of my children. Women with children are the primary users of minivans, and we need time to gather our children and belongings when we stop. We hope to do it in a safely locked car. Women with young children will worry that both doors will open at the same time letting their children free, to go in both directions.

Best Features

It is a beautiful vehicle if you don't care about safety issues.

Worst Features

Chevy needs to acknowledge that this is a design flaw and take responsibility in retro-fitting a module that will allow a more secure locking system.
