Review 2 of 4

Price Paid:  $16000.00 from dealer

Year / Model Reviewed:
2005 ls

Strengths:
gas mileage, dependability, roomy.

Weaknesses:
It's a van

Summary:
For a van this thing's been good. It gets 23mpg city and 27 on the highway. I couldn't believe it! So far no problems other than road noise coming from the back and it has 50000+ miles on it. That's right I said no problems, nothing. It's got the 3.5 which has plenty of power and the mileage for a van is unreal. We drive it 500 miles a week and fill it up once a week due to it having a big tank. For the price how could I complain.

Review 3 of 4

Price Paid:  $22000.00 from Driver's way

Year / Model Reviewed:
2005 Chevrolet Uplander

Strengths:
Great looking for a minivan. Very comfortable seating for up to 7 people. Perfect for family trips.

Weaknesses:
Nothing major. Minor radio issue. Could have a bit more horsepower.

Summary:
Great car for the family. We have put 37,000 miles on it in two and a half years and have had no major problems. It rides like a dream on the highway. Kids love the DVD system. Engine and transmission run very smooth. Gas mileage is 20 in town and 27 on the highway. We have the V6 which is adequate, but could have a bit more power. Very comfortable ride for up to 7 people.

We have had an issue with the radio clicking off of a few select stations, can’t quite figure that out. Also, handling around corners leaves a little bit to be desired even for a minivan.

Overall, we love the van, hope it continues.

Review 4 of 4

Price Paid:  $33000.00 from Crown Chevrolet

Year / Model Reviewed:
2005 Uplander LT

Strengths:
Great body shape on exterior
Like the power seats and heating
Nice radio with XM and speaker system w/DVD

Weaknesses:
Don't get me started, they are all listed above! Car looks great and everyone says they love my car, but it is NOT worth the trips to the service center!

Summary:
This car has been a nightmare! I have had it in the shop at least 7 times in the first 2 years for problems. The most common issue is the auto sliding door in the back behind the passenger seat. It tries to open on its own causing a barage of dinging noises while you are driving. It also takes several attempts to close it as it keeps opening and this happens to me a few times a week. I have had the door motor replaced and latches and all else they could try, but it still does it! Also had my fuel tank reset 2 times and the car does not start in my drive way if I park backwards with less than a quarter tank of gas! The fuel gage also likes to float every once in a while so I don't know how much gas I have. Had that fixed twice. Also, mileage SUCKS! On a good day it is 15-16, but most of the time it is 14 mpg. I have had that checked multiple times also. AND the other day I tried to open my door and the handle casing fell off! It won't stay back on and I am not looking forward to taking it in to the shop again! I have had it 2 years exactly and it only has 25,000 miles.

I used to own a Toyota 4 Runner, should have NEVER gotten rid of it, I needed a minivan, but regret it now!
