2006 Chevrolet Uplander LS 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
We bought our van and within 3 weeks took it on vacation. Averaged 24mpg highway and had a smooth ride the whole way. A/C cooled down quickly and with rear air conditioning the van was comfortable all the time. If I had to pick out a weak point it would be the middle chairs don't have arm rests. Sounds silly but this can be important on longer trips. Our van has the DVD system that was great for the kids. I am not sure the back cargo area is as big as some other vans. But there is more space for the passengers so it is a nice trade. If you are going to drop 30K get a Honda Oddesy but for 20K-23K this is a great choice.
Smooth ride and little outside noise. Plenty of room for 3rd row passengers.
Arm rests for middle captian's chairs should be standard. Also something other than the cargo net between the front seats should be standard.
