2008 Chevrolet Uplander Minivan LS 4dr Ext Minivan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)
Bought this van 5 years ago with 80k. With over 180k. Haven't had any power train issues. Just changed front hubs, inner tierods, and struts,shocks. Replaced all the seats from a Venture van. Far more comfortable than the seating that came in the van. Some of the interior is falling apart, but cheap and easily repaired. Love the power and handling. Plan to drive this thing into the ground, if I can. Typical GM, parts are inexpensive and readily available. Kids broke outside door handle, pick a good used one at a salvage yard from a 2000 Suburban. Direct fit.
2008 Uplander has had 2 sets of head gaskets under new car warranty (36,000 mile) 1 Set at 72,000 miles (only covered half). Uplander now has 82,000 miles and Dealer isn't sure they will cover it. This is a fine example of a defective product that was pushed off until the warranty expired and then they STICK IT TO YOU! I would urge anyone thinking about buying a new or used GM to consider how well they back their products or repair them!

I had this car for a full week and every light on my dash is flashing!!! Check ABS System check Stability system check Traction system! Very first minivan I leased and Im already not enjoying the experience!!
Run away, no really do not bother. I purchased this vehicle and from 85,000 miles to 125,000 I put in over $6000. Sadly it is not as easy as dumping it. I purchased this for a work vehicle and have been in the shop more than on the road. Now with 174,000 miles and more electronic, steering and other issues it would be a better paper weight.
