Very reliable wit plenty of power!

2006 Chevrolet Uplander ls

Reliability and power are a couple of great features of this van. The rear seats are very heavy and hard to remove and reinstall . If you have it tuned up, be ready to pay up! The V6 spark plugs are very hard to get to. The engine mounts are unbolted and the engine jacked forward to reach the plugs! Besides that we have had the van over 10 years and it's never let us down! Excellent heater and rear A/C! Love this van and I wish GM would start making them again!!!

Chevrolet is in it for the long haul.

2006 Chevrolet Uplander LS

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.

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

2006 Chevrolet Uplander LS

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!

Best van ever built that does not look like a minivan.

2006 Chevrolet Uplander LS

The Uplander is a great family van. It has good gas mileage in town and on the highway. The removable seats are easy to install and remove. Having sliding door on both side make it easy to get the kids out of the van on the safest side of the van. The auto locking doors are great to keeping the kids in the van when the van is in drive or reverse.

06 Chevy uplander ls problems.

2006 Chevrolet Uplander LS

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

Very dependable van. For a family.

2006 Chevrolet Uplander LS

I have 180000 miles and had no problems with it. Is very reliable. I have had no performance problems,l really like the third row seating it gets very good gas mileage. It's very roomy, with three teenagers l need all the room l can get.I like all features it came with.

- Chuck M

It's a great vehicle for family

2006 Chevrolet Uplander LS

It's a really great van it's tough like a truck. We got stuck in a bad snow storm and we was able to get out of our driveway with this van. It's spacious for family and animals. It's good on gas. The frame is tough we got rear ended and it just dented the bumper.
