2006 Chevrolet Uplander LS 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
I've got 2000 miles on my 2006 Uplander and I haven't had any problems at all. I think that this is a really good value minivan. The reports of the 3.5 liter being under powered are probably a little exaggerated. Compared to a SUV or a car maybe, but the 3.3 in my wifes Sienna is equally sluggish and probably worse off the line than my Uplander. I wish their were a few more cup holders and storage compartments, but other than that the initial quality has been perfect. I think alot of the bugs in the 2005 models have been worked out in the 2006s. Handling is pretty good for a minivan, steering and braking response is great. I'm averaging between 19 and 20 MPG around town.
Dash and instrument panel, steering and brakes.
More cup holders and storage. Roll down middle windows.
