Great Deal on a Great Van
By Scott on
2005 Chevrolet Uplander LT Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
We purchased this van after finally deciding a minivan was for us. We test drove them all and knew this was the right one for the pricing and options. We took it for its maiden voyage of 1000 miles of mountains and rain with no problems averaging 22 MPG. It's plenty powerful, handles well, looks nice, and is full of enough features to keep everyone happy. We test drove 3 Uplanders and one Terazza and all had a strange low speed clunking sound from the front end. Hope this is not a failure waiting to happen. Also, there are some minor rattles here and there but nothing overwhelming. Our key remote is slow to lock and unlock the door but hope its just the battery. Great experience and hope for more
DVD, wireless headsets, leather/cloth seating, overhead storage compartments, information center, cool gages, Best power we tested, power doors, plenty of cup holders, 110v plug, stowage of headsets, reclining seats, 500 mile range, good gas mileage, rear power windows, value!
Better armrests, less rattles and clunks, more door storage, rear hatch difficult to shut, rear sensor beep instead of lights and more then 3 mph for it to work, no memory seats, power doors kind of noisy, better fuel millage, throttle response could be better, less road and wind noise,
