Bought used with 133000+ miles. 23+miles to a gallon @ 70 mph. Heater could be better but still keeps us warm in -0 temps. We got it for $6500.00 tax, title, ins, & travel expenses to pick it up. We are very happy with it.

Better heating system

2008 Chevrolet Uplander LS 4dr Ext Minivan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We have owned our Uplander for 3 years. It was a rental with 26000 miles on it. That told us that it wasn't in the shop more than it had been driven. The seats are fairly close to the seats in front of them, but the grandkids love Grandma's car. It has been really reliable, we haven't had any trouble with it. It now has 50000+ miles on it. Don't like the tire sensors.


Best Features

Really easy to get in and out of. Love all the bells and whistles. It is fun to drive.


Worst Features

More foot room between seats. Needs to have space under the rear seat. Since they don't make these anymore, this is pointless.

Review

We bought this van with 4,000 miles on it and 3 months old, it was a "Dealer Demo" and it had a sticker price of almost $30,000 and we paid $18,300 so we got a great deal on it! We now have 53,000 miles on it and had it for 3 years now, it drives like a champ! Never had a problem!! We did buy the extended warranty on it so we don't have to worry about repairs! In town we average about 19 - 21 mpg, and Highway we average anywhere from 27-30 and I think is great for this size. Better then our Lincoln Aviator that gets 9 mpg


Best Features

Gas mileage, power doors, heated leather seats, onstar, suv looks, power, smoth ride, reliable


Worst Features

The only thing we don't like about the van is the front end on it, it makes it look like a light bulb

Review

Had it 2 years and now the battery goes dead for no apparent reason. Sometimes it starts, sometimes it doesn't. The dealer will make you pay just to look at it.

Review

I bought this vehicle for my wife as she needed a large more reliable vehicle for the family. We have had nothing but problems with this 2008 Uplander. The worst thing is it's not reliable. Charging System Failure continue to be a problem. Some days the vehicle will be just fine, and then other days the vehicle won't start. A dealership has replaced the alternator twice, and again we are still having the same issue. Charging System Failure and the vehicle won't start. When you have a family with young kids nothing is more important then reliability. What is so frustrating is if you google problems with 2008 Uplanders you will get several customers with my exact same story. :(


Worst Features

just don't buy the vehicle. i have no agenda or problems with GM, or any GM dealership or service center as I have been a long time GM buyer, but I would never recommend the Uplander.
