I brought this van in Sep05. The ENGINE has been replaced 2 times. The Low Oil Presure Message and the ABS light are still coming on once a while. The gas gauge is fluctuating. The dealer still does not know how to fix it. DO NOT BUY GM.
I lost confident on this car.
I do not think GM can do any better due to their situation.
Our experience was good until at 11,000 miles an awful harmonic sound began occuring at highway speeds of 65-75 mph. Dealer could not locate it and we all directed it to the replacement of the passenger side headlamp but to no avail. After 3 visits to dealer,and 3000 miles, it was discovered that noise "probably" taking place in driver's side door as we placed a handkerchief on the weatherstrip by the mirror and it ceased completely for 1500 miles. But the sound is attempting to return but not as painful as before. Plastic door trim on each side appears loose and causes concerns of faulty installation.We miss the lights that stay on on our dodge caravan as well as the door locked sound
Our first close to new vehicle... it is perfect for all of our needs. I would like to have had it in an all wheel drive. It is very comfortable to drive. Our first preference would have been the Toyota Sienna, but this fit our budget better. Highly recommended.
We just purchased our montana with 29,000 miles. it is still under warranty but we also bought the full warranty just in case so we do not have out of pocket expenses down the road. We had a 12 screen dvd player installed for the kids as an after market feature. it is awesome. we love it so far. I did notice a whistling type sound coming from the windsheild when going over 50....anyone else had that?
I had did comparisons between the Uplander and SV6. Found the SV6 to be a better deal. We purchased a 2005 in 2/06, so it was one of the last of the previous year to be sold off the lot. Had pretty much all options on it, which is great. The standard DVD system is great for our 2 yr old.
Love the ride and look, both interior and exterior. LOTS of vents in the passenger area. The flip up cup holders between seats are nice, but hard to walk between when flipped down. We have both power side doors - WOW!! Absolutely love pushing a button while holding a 2 yr old. Remote start is great.
The armrests are a bit low when opened up for use. Both husband and I noticed this. Difficulty getting to third seat with captains chairs...especially with flip up console.
