2005 Chevrolet Uplander LS Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
This car has many serious design defects. The cup holder in the dashboard comes off track easily (with or without a drink in it). The sliding door motors run after the doors are closed. The sliding doors have had times when they do not open at all. This vehicle has serious wind noise (in particular around the windshield). On particularly windy days, the noise can be very loud and distracting. The interior has issues. The compartments on the back of the seats do not close easily. The latches to adjust the seatbacks do not work properly. This car drives very good but with all the other issues this car has big disappointment!!
This car handles well on the road and is comfortable for long trips. The body design is unique, looks like a SUV with the benefits of a minivan. The push button opening of the doors is fabulous when it works properly.
The wind noise needs to be worked on. The quality of the equipment (latches on compartments and seats, sliding door mechanism, windshield cleaner spout, cupholder, etc) needs serious attention.
