Chevy Uplander Minivan. Good for camping, & or for going on family vacations. The DVD Player really makes road trips allot more easier

I bought it from a used car lot approx. a year ago. The reasons why I decided to buy it are because I liked how it looks sporty. The windows are tinted & the tint is still in tack. It seats 7 people which I really like because I have Grandchildren & that leads me to another reason I bought this van. The DVD player. It's seated upfront on the ceiling between the driver & passenger seats with easy access to push play, pause, & stop. As well as easy viewing for those riding in the back. Another feature I like is that it has 2 sliding doors making it easy when hauling passengers to get in & out of. I also like the hatch back it makes it easy for hauling groceries without them falling out & rolling all over the place. Other features it has are #1) Cruise Control (Still working) #2) Air Conditioning (Still working) #3) Electric Windows (Still working), Side Mirrors (Still working), & Locks (Not working from drivers side door, but still works from passenger side door), #4 (Digital info button displays on dash. with the option to choose your language)

Our Uplander has been steady and sure over many years and many miles. Just as awesome as the day we brought it home!

Although my crossover vehicle is over 10 years old and has over 150,000 miles on it, I still love it as much as the day we drove it home. Aside from new tires, and basic maintenance, we have never had a major mechanical issue. We have driven it from Missouri to Florida seven times two of those times we pulled a small trailer with it. I love the automatic doors, those have been the only issues we've ever had in that sometimes the van thinks the doors are not closed and makes the alarm sound when, in fact, the doors are closed and everything is fine. We find the solution is to just turn the automatic door open/close feature off, check the fuses, replace as needed and go on with our lives. Our Uplander has a DVD player, but it also has inputs that allow us to connect our portable hard drive--that way we don't have to rely on skippy DVDs on long car trips. And...ten cup holders is glorious. We love our Uplander!

For a minivan it actually gets very good gas mileage.

It handles well while driving you feel secure like it is ripping the road. I like that everything is automatic and easy to control and I like it has a DVD player in it. I do not like the fact that it does not have a lot of get up and go. Having six children that are tall people it does not feel like the manufacturers of minivans take into consideration real people sitting in the chairs, it could have more leg room and it could have more headroom.

Chevrolet is in it for the long haul.

I have driven this van since 2006 and it has almost 240k miles. The body still looks good with just a tiny rust spot and the transmission is acting up a little in cold weather but this van has done amazing by me and my family. I would definitely choose a Chevrolet for my next vehicle as this one has been a great purchase for me, you couldn't ask for much more than what I have gotten out of this vehicle in the past 13 years.

- Jill B

Not for traveling! But otherwise a decent van.

Not a very smooth ride, feels more like a truck with less than optimal suspension. It really lacks in the back cargo area. We have a family of 6 and we fill it just on a normal ride- so traveling is over packed and we are always having to climb over and around luggage. However, outside of having to pack anything extra is seats us comfortably. Not my favorite purchase, but gets us where we need to be, reasonably.

- Erin H

Very reliable for a family vehicle with plenty of room for the kids and pets to be comfortable as well as removable seats to haul just about anything you could think of. A great all around vehicle.

It is very accommodating for a large family with plenty of room for up to 7 people and still some storage space beyond that. It has the horsepower of a truck, it is our go to vehicle for moving family member on more than one occasion. It has been the most reliable vehicle that our family has owned in years, have replace two other vehicles due to breakdowns during the time period that we have owned this van.

- VR H

First car for me with over 125, 000 miles, and still runs so well.

I bought this car used, with not many miles. First car I have had that now has over 125, 000 miles on it. Even if I live alone, my grandchildren and children come to visit, and I need a van. Plus, I travel quite often between houses, and love the capacity of it, as I like to take certain things with me. Plus, picking up and bringing children and grands to and from the airport, with luggage, is easy.

- Audrey A

Takes a licking and keeps on ticking.

The uplander is an amazingly sturdy vehicle n will go thru anything type of weather. It is durability is amazing n when I need to get up n go it has no problem getting up to speed n gets me where I am going quick. I have got 2 smaller children and am constantly carrying others w me n I feel safe as can be n no worries of any of us being in harm's way w my uplander der.

My sanctuary: I used to spend my lunch hours in my van reading and taking a nap.

I have had my van for 12 years. I have had to have some bigger repairs on it throughout the years, but mechanically it is still in good shape. My biggest complaint about the van is the windshield wipers which fold down under the hood. It has plenty of room in it and I have used it for my kids, my grandkids, girl scouts and traveling. I love my van!

- Angela S

The ups and downs of the uplander.

The car rides nice and smooth, but I wish it had the update software as newer models, it has a DVD player on this model but I haven't been able to get it to work there wasn't a manual for the car. It is spacious but I need a little more space. There is only 1 automatic sliding door & it needs to have it on both sides.

- Tamara V

A very good van for my purpose.

I have drove it for 6 years and have had no major problems it's great for all the great grandkids it have to care for very room easy to drive would buy another one when it is time to trade it is very roomy and has cargo space to carry thing I need can't say had any problem took care of it and it been good.

- Rita P

06 Chevy uplander ls problems.

Don't complain about it too much. Just the way the suspension is set up along with the placement of the fuel pump it causes the gas to run away from the pump so it runs out of gas very easily. Like most chevys also the alternator dies very quickly and the placement on the motor is very difficult to access.

- William B

The Chevy Uplander is great for style and comfort.

The Uplander is comfortable and seats seven. My Uplander is good on gas when driving the highway and has lost of storage space. The air conditioning as well as the heat work great and steady. The Uplander can be very spacious when seats are out or folded up. Enough room to sleep or to haul things.

- Rhonda R

It is easy to drive and easy to keep clean.

I have had to get the transmission changed already. Otherwise it runs very well. I do feel like perhaps I need to get the oil changed more often than what is normal. It is sturdy and holds a lot of people. It is reliable and easy to drive. Easy to keep clean if you have pets as well.

- Kirsten M

Best family oriented vehicle.

It has almost 200,000 miles I have no major issues ever and it is a daily freeway driver love it best vehicle ever. Built in car seat was great for the grandkids as was the built in DVD player with drop down screen and wireless headphones. Room for the whole family and great on gas.

- Pamela S

Very dependable and never lets me down.

Very reliable very comfortable for all my children and grandbaby and they can watch DVD on trips. Good on gas. Never had a lot of problems with it. Back seats let down so I can load big stuff in the back or haul things to big for a car. Automatic sliding doors and automatic lights.

- Patricia B

Chevrolet uplander is a really great family van.

I love the DVD player for my children. Plenty of room in the back for groceries and folding back seats are great to. The air conditioning works really well after all these years. The sliding doors are also really easy to open for my children. Over all a great van for my family.

- Irene W

This is a very reliable and dependable car.

No major problems with my 2006 uplander. It has been a good reliable car and very good seating. Plenty of room for my grandchildren. Oil changes and new brake pads is all that has been done. I would recommend this uplander for anyone that wants a reliable and dependable car.

- Fern J

I have problem with the power steel.

I have problems with de doors, they stuck a lot, the power steel is my big problem, there are cost to much in repairs. And the lights,I do know is something with electric problem, but they turn off a lot, every light cost almost 20 dlls. And the labor is expensive.

The van is very spacious with folding down back seat for more cargo space.

Too big, bad gas mileage, very comfortable, spacious can fit 7 people. Ride is smooth, nice luggage space the back seat folds down for more storage. The reliability is very good I have over 130,000 miles on it and plan on driving it for a couple of more years.

- Eric R

I like that my seats fold down if I need the extra room.

Its roomy for all my kids and extra things I need to pack up. I also love that it gets decent gas mileage. It has a TV, headphones, lots of storage space. I only ever need an oil change or small maintenance things done to it. I rarely ever have major issues.

- Whitney W

When we go on long trips, , it has a dvr for passengers. Riding in the back seats.

I like that the passenger doors slide open and shut. Automatically and that it has backup beep which. Sounds when I am backing up and am close to the. Car behind me. I do not have any complaints about. My vehicle. I do not want another vehicle at this. Time.

- Susanne S

It's been a good, reliable van for the last 12 years.

I love my van! It's so open and roomy in the front and tons of space in the back. The only thing I don't like is the windshield wiper blades. They tuck down under the hood and you can't pull them out to clean snow from under them, you have to open the hood.

- Angela V

This is the most reliable company I have ever dealt with.

I have owned this van for over 10 years and it runs the same as when I bought it. I do all routine maintenance and take care of it. I don't misuse it and it hasn't given me trouble. I have always owned Chevy vehicles and they are just a reliable vehicles.

- Robin P

Chevy uplander: a little something for the whole family.

I own a Chevy uplander 06. It is a great vehicle for the family. Mostly for the kids. The DVD player with headsets are perfect for the young ones. I personally like the all wheel drive aspect of the vehicle. Kind of delivers a little for the whole family.

- Jon R

There are two seats in front and two back and a bench seat the back of the van.

The van is easy to drive and drives smooth. It is great in gas mileage. I really like how spacious it is. I also love that the air conditioning goes all the way to the back of the van. It has a front end problem but that can be fixed.

- Carmen S




How much room you have inside the van.

Like the way it sits above traffic. Like the way it sits on long rides. It has plenty of room for all the grandchildren when we take them on vacation. It is easy to see around other cars parked next to you.

- Brenda B

Ideas for updating vehicles with the newer technologies.

My Car is reliable and runs with ease, it is maybe a little outdated. I wish it had some of the new technology as the newer cars. On screen audio system with connectivity with Bluetooth availabilities.

- Tamara B

It dependable. Low maintenance costs. I can use it to haul large items and groceries. It starts up every time I get in it to go somewhere. Which is important for a caretaker of family members.

Not sure. Everyone's needs are different.

It is a nice vehicle but actually a little small for us. But doing what we have to do. Cannot fit my son's specialty wheelchair so had to get him a travel one. So it fits with his hoyer lift.

- Terry B

It is one of a kind and you have to have a taste for that kind of vehicle.

It does not run terribly but the transmission is starting to go and my heat doesn't work. Neither does my radio. It is reliable to get you to where you need to go but it is a beater for sure.

- Alexis H

Very reliable van with very few problems. The problems that I have encountered were normal maintenance issues. Great vehicle to have.

The Van drives very well. When there is a problem, it alerts you in a specific manner so that you know which direction to go in to fix the problem. The alert sound is very very loud.

- Sharon W

Overall, it's been a good vehicle, dependable (but it's older and I want a new one).

It's an older vehicle but still runs well. Haven't had many big problems with it, although there is some rear end weirdness. Had to change rear tires more frequently than I would like.

- Sherry N

The DVD player is great and my son likes the built in car seat.
