2006 Chevrolet Uplander LT 4dr Ext Minivan w/2LT (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Was the first new car we bought always bought used. Had problems with this van from day one. Seems Chevy has a problem with the electrical system with this van and doesn't want to admit it. Was in the shop 3 times for the same problem with the gas gauge before it was fixed. Just got it out of the shop last with for another electrical problem. Not a very comfortable ride for a 6,3" person legs are very cramped. Don't like not having a center console. Be sure to get the extended warranty with van your going to need it. Been the most unreliable car I have own in the 18 years of driving. Never again buy a Chevy mini- van. Should have bought a Dodge.


Best Features

DVD player, wireless headphones for kids. Remote start


Worst Features

Center console for the front, more leg room, better construction of the van and better parts. more comfortable seats.

2006 Chevrolet Uplander LT 4dr Ext Minivan w/2LT (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I have had my Uplander for 2.5 years and I have had the worst experience. The service department has had to replace the power steering shaft and steering column in it 2 times now and the sliding doors haven't worked for quite some time. It's no wonder GM doesn't make this vehicle anymore. I feel it is a safety hazard. I don't recommend this vehicle.


Best Features

Nice interior


Worst Features

Start from scratch.

2006 Chevrolet Uplander LS 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I love this car/van/suv because the interior design. It is a good family car plus the rear air condition is great. I did not buy the model with all the bells and whistles but the standard equipment alone offers a good bit.


Best Features

Rear air


Worst Features

Arm rest

2006 Chevrolet Uplander LT 4dr Ext Minivan AWD w/PhatNoise Media Player (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

So far we have had a very positive experience with our Uplander as we had with our Montana. The AWD certainly worked well in the deep Pennslvania snow. Phatnoise is a wonderful idea, I'm not sure why GM discontinued their relationship with that vendor. Basically we have unlimited amount of MP3s at our fingertips on a 40 GB Phatnoise Harddrive while the kids watch their DVDs in silence. We took it on our first roadtrip and it performed magnificently. In addition the snubnose SUV styling tricks everyone. I still don't understand minivan apathy, these cars rock with good power in a utilitarian wrapper. We love it. GM should continue to manufacture these vehicles.


Best Features

Phatnoise/DVD, Double sliding doors, backup sensor warning system, AC/DC outlet, air inflator, driver info center, cupholders galore, solid GM feel and muscular GM styling. Onstar/XM (haven't really utilized yet)


Worst Features

Gas mileage could be slightly better. Space is not quite as much as the older GMs. Luggage rack crossbars should come standard, we bought separatly for our Sears luggage carrier.

Mne doesn't have the little console between the seats but I have taken care of that. just put another cup holder in there. orks fine.
