2006 Chevrolet Uplander LS 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
I loved this van until I had to buy tires for it. They are very expensive, and most companies had to order them in. It ran very well until I hit the 88,000 miles. All of a sudden everything goes out on it at once. I had to replace the brakes and rotors. I have to replace the engine at a cost of $5,862.00. You can only have the work done at a dealership. Most of the parts are dealer only. My family of mechanics can't do the work, because there are no manuals for it. The dealer manual cost $168.00. My lovely van has become my worst nightmare. My other van has 193,000 miles and I have only replaced the struts.
The way it handles, and the front and rear air. I like the video player and radio controls. There is plenty of room.
They need to have larger cup holders, and locate them in a way that they don't hit the radio. They need an option for a middle bench seat, instead of only captain's chairs. Put an engine that doesn't die at the 88,000 mile mark. Allow for moving the video player.
