2006 Chevrolet Uplander LT 4dr Ext Minivan w/3LT, PhatNoise Media Player (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Everything starting to fail or have problems.

In past year, I’ve had over $1000 in repairs and facing another $1000 in repairs.

This is a gently driven van.

If you are buying a used Uplander, thoroughly check —-

1. Rack and pinion
2. Power Steering for leaks
3. Electrical affecting signals and dash lights
4. Operation of power door
(That people want to grab and open manually - flip that power switch off to avoid an expensive fix!)

5. Seats may cut into back of your legs if sitting a long time. You could cause lymphadema to start in your legs ... this can be very serious!

6. You can’t lock front doors from back seat unless using remote key fob.

My key fobs failed and new batteries didn’t work.

Review

Very realiale car, that has good braking and acceleration with good driving comfort. It does have a starting problem. You have to floor the gas pedal to start it.

Review

This is an excellent vehicle for a family with children. There is plenty of storage and seating. The DVD player is an added plus for passengers. The van handles
well for this type of vehicle and the mileage is reasonable if it is used for highway driving, vacations, etc. The interior is easy to maintain with average or above
average materials used. The most outstand feature for me is the wonderful sound system with Bose speakers front, side and back.

Review

I bought the Uplander for it's size and assuming that a GM/Chevrolet would have easy maintenance/repair. First wake up came when I had to get the battery replaced. ABS light comes on frequently, even after repairs. The lock, and mirror adjustment don't work on the driver's side. Anti Theft system shut the car off several times. The engine light is on now. I've gotten a total of 7 different codes. Some related to the transmission. Told by the mechanic I need to decide if I want to spend more money on this van. I drove an old Toyota van that was 10 yrs old before it had any issues. We're only at 126K miles with the Uplander. Just very disappointed in this vehicle.


Best Features

Size and the DVD player (while it worked)


Worst Features

There has been so many issues with this vehicle I would not know where to start. Anyway the Uplander isn't made any more and there is probably a very good reason for that.

2006 Chevrolet Uplander LT 4dr Ext Minivan AWD w/PhatNoise Media Player (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

When it was first bought it was a good van, until a couple years later we started having problems. The tires would get worn out faster, the van performs horrible in snowy and rainy weather, traction control would come on for no reason during warm weather with nothing on the ground.
When going up hill you basically have to floor it.


Best Features

None at all


Worst Features

Make a better van
