Not a great experience.

2005 Chevrolet Uplander LS Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


We leased this van in April 2005 and have been counting the days till April 2009 when it goes back. It has been mechanically reliable but we've had too many trips to the dealer for electrical, build quality and handling problems for us to call the van reliable. It constantly pulls to the right - wheel alignment doesn't help - and sways all over the road at highway speeds. My wife won't drive it, preferring our '97 F150! Cabin space and comfort is adequate although front storage is very limited as is the trunk area compared to other vans out there. We were seduced by the long list of features for the money compared to Honda and Toyota but next time will pay way more attention to quality.

Best Features

DVD (when it works), power sliding doors (when they work), tow package, gas mileage is OK - 25-28 mpg in mixed highway/gravel driving

Worst Features

Large headrests man very limited rearward visibilility, increase storage space, remove the gremlims from the electrics, improve build quality - in short, GM is doing the right thing discontinuing it!
