Great van/utility van. For work of family or both.

I love this car I got it for very cheap do the body damage. But I was more interested in the engine and transmission. With 180,000 miles I was wondering what kind of problems I would have. But so far nothing has gone wrong. The drive is smooth and it is great on gas. 20 mpg and nothing less. I have always wanted something I could jump into and go across the country without worry of being stranded on the side of the road. As long as you keep the oil clean and keep the rust in check I feel like this car will last me years. The room in the is very nice. I have the seats out and a ladder holder on top. It looks like a utility van. Honestly I can do everything a truck can do. And if I ever need to I can just pop the seats in less than 20 minutes back to a family minivan. I highly recommend this car to anyone looking for something they can depend on.

Its smaller than it looks.

It's a good car other than it has no extras other than power windows. The front seats are comfortable but the middle and back seats are awkward and uncomfortable to sit in especially for long car rides. The ac works great if your sitting up front but for the other 5 passengers in the back it sucks because there's only 4 vents upfront and you can not feel them in the back. There's also isn't any legroom in rhea back between the front and middle or the middle and back seats. It's really hard to get the seats in and out of the car because they are super heavy. Its ok on gas, I believe it gets like 20 miles to the gallon. Tune up are expensive! The motor is turned sideways you gotta pay the mechanics extra money because they have to unbolt the motor and turn it so they can reach the other three spark plugs!

Very reliable car with lots of pep and get up and go. We have many enjoyable years of using it with few repairs. I am sorry they don't make and Uplander model any more.

It has been a very reliable vehicle. We have only had to make about two repairs since we bought it. There is a problem with the back sliding door closing and opening multiple times instead of one. I hold 7 people which is helpful because we have 16 grandchildren. The seats are very easy to fold down to put up the extra seats. It has good energy and start up. We enjoy the video player for our grandchildren to watch while we drive them to the places we are going The windows work well and the automatic mirror as very helpful when we are driving. I do wish it has a tape player like cars used to have. I would be happy to purchase another chevrolet car as this has been very reliable. It had over 100,000 miles and still has the pep and energy we like in a car.
