2005 Chevrolet Uplander LS Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
This minivan replaced my 2000 Honda Odyssey. We purchased this van in February 2005 and have driven 46K miles so far. We don't expect it to perform like a sport car but it definitely out-performs our previous Odyssey, both in power and handling. We averaged 2-4 family trips to Florida yearly and it is a great vehicle for our three kids in a 9 hour ride. Yes, we had some maintenance issues like others rating this vehicle but nothing major. Gas mileage is great when compared to our other car, which is an SUV with 15 mpg. We are about to purchase the 2008 LT model.
DVD system and the AV input for my son to plug in his PS2 for long trips. Also like the power and torque it delivers.
Second row armrests and a more user friendly CD player. Second row bucket seats do not remove easily.
