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

2008 Chevrolet Uplander LS

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.

Reliable family vehicle for budget conscious people!

2008 Chevrolet Uplander LS

Very reliable and simple minivan. The doors don't open or close automatically and it can sometimes be difficult for young kids to get them closed all the way. We have been diligent with routine maintenance including oil changes. The only things we have had to fix are due to hitting the curb in a snowstorm and needing new tires from wear and use. I wish there was a DVD player for the passengers in the back. The air conditioning and heater work great. The seats are fabric. I enjoy the auxiliary cord option to be able to listen to music from my phone. Great family vehicle for someone who is budget conscious.

Reliable 'sporty' minivan

2008 Chevrolet Uplander LS

I bought the car with 46,000 miles on it. I really had no major issues with it until it had 125,000 miles. It has been reliable, even after multiple trips out of state. I like that it's a minivan that can seat 7, and even though it's smaller than a normal minivan because it's considered 'sporty' there is still plenty of room to feel comfortable. The 3rd row seating has cup holders and a charger outlet for your phone. There is no center console, but there is a net between the 2 front seats to hold items. Overall I have been satisfied with this vehicle.

Our new-to-us Chevy uplander.

2008 Chevrolet Uplander LS

All doors work fine, but seals tend to detach or not work properly. Seats are comfortable and the back seats are removable for extra space. Console controls are easy to use and understand. Any mechanical issues that have come up (brakes, tires, etc) have been easy to fix at a low cost. The color of our vehicle is nice in that it does not draw attention, but the interior is a light color so the seats do not retain heat from the sun. The back windows are tinted, making trips easier on my children.

The reliability and longevity of the Chevy Uplander

2008 Chevrolet Uplander LS

The Chevy uplander is a reliable vehicle with no added unnecessary features. It has never broken down and is maintained with the proper oil changes and checkups. I love the uplander. It has 150 thousand miles and is still going strong. I have named her Brownie to match her beautiful sheen. I frequently take her on trips hundreds of miles away, and have never encountered any problems.

Great for room, not so great and fully functioning.

2008 Chevrolet Uplander LS

My vehicle comfortably fits 7 passengers. However it seems to always have engine problems. As well and electrical problems. The rear lights ie brakes are constantly going out. The rear window washer works when it wants to, and sometimes when you turn the vehicle off and remove the key the music is still running. This is also after you have already exited the vehicle.

Suspension system in this vehicle has glitches but otherwise very dependable.

2008 Chevrolet Uplander LS

Has been very reliable vehicle had fuel pump replaced common problem I found out. Traction control, stability control seem to have some glitches in them but so far other than these few things it has been very reliable. Interior has good space and the air conditioner and heat is fantastic in this vehicle. Stereo system isn't bad either.

The many things you can use it for

2008 Chevrolet Uplander LS

It's very roomy. Good on gas and reliable. The speakers are loud in the van. Enough leg room for everyone. There is room to be able to load a lot of material into it and people as well. The a.c is very cold which is very good to have in the summertime. There very many things you can use this van for just depends on the person.

The Chevrolet uplander - a versatile van.

2008 Chevrolet Uplander LS

The Chevy uplander is very versatile van. It has plenty of power with a 6-cylinder engine but it gets very reasonable mileage too. I can transport 6 people, or I can fold down 2 or 4 back seats and have plenty of cargo space. I really like this car and am very happy I bought it!

- Sherry B

My amazing 11 year old Chevrolet uplander

2008 Chevrolet Uplander LS

I absolutely love my vehicle. Although there are problems with the fuel pump, and you never know how much gas you have, I haven't had any other problems with it. I'm almost positive that one I get that fixed it'll be running like new when I purchased it.

- Crystal B

Still a tank after 10 harsh Minnesota winters.

2008 Chevrolet Uplander LS

Comfortable, spacious, reliable, well built. Great gas mileage. Still drives well after 10+ years and 200,000 miles. Only annoyances are the floating gas gauge that is typical of Chevys and the location of the battery beneath the fuse box under the hood.

- Bridget W

poorly made and regret purchase

2008 Chevrolet Uplander LS

every other month something breaks. Automatic doors quit. DVD player quit. Door panel falls off. Captain seat won't recline or adjust. Horrible vehicle. back windows don't work and quality is poor. Parts are extremely expensive or just not made anymore.
