2006 Chevrolet Uplander LS Fleet 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
We bought our van used with 58000 km. Now it has about 94,000 km. It had a few little annoyances but nothing compared to now. As many of you have said, your steering is noisy and so is mine. I have a strange problem. It seems when it rains and the van is wet I can't even turn!! If I'm holding down the brake and try to turn the van left it seizes up. I wait a second and slowly it loosens up and lets me steer? I also have a terrible grinding noise that comes from the rear. The brakes were just done and again when wet this noise comes back. Maybe we should try and trade it in? Any advice would be appreciated.
Good size, roomy and all round a good family van.
Replace the steering system...get rid of shaking when braking..ours shook down every hill going out east last year. Very disturbing!
