Over all, I liked the van at initial purchase. However, after 3 1/2 years of ownership, it is the most disappointing vehicle I have ever owned.

Increase the quality of parts, materials used and improve the operative design of the suspension, brakes.
2006 Chevrolet Uplander Review:
The Uplander is a disgrace to G.M. customers and G.M.'s reputation as a builder of quality vehicles. I have never owned a vehicle that has had so many issues/problems.
Faulty voltage regulator, worn front end stabilizers, warped rotors, premature brake wear, front wheel bearings replaced, hard starts with run on cranking, body side molding becomes discoloured and is replaced due to poor quality, rear wiper motor quits and has to be replaced, rear 3rd. brake light lens cracked and discoloured, rear calipers siezed at 35,000 kms., problem with rear tires cupping due to poor design and G.M. alignment specs. about to buy 3rd set of tires at 80,000 kms., premature wear on leather seating, ABS and Stabilitrac warning lights come on sporadically because of contamination of the sensors, steering clunking due to loose knuckle in steering assembly, and in reflection of all this, the "proud" Chevrolet emblems on front and rear have become tarnished and tainted from water infiltration due to poor quality. Strange coincidence?
