Great Van. I am surprised at all the negative reviews. Mine has been solid reliable for nearly 100,000 miles. The performance is decent, and the interior is fairly quiet and comfortable. I got mine for around 80% of list with some serious haggling. Appearently, no one else wanted one - their loss! Gas mileage is even pretty good for the size. t least 26 mpg on the highway. 19-20 in stop-and-go.....

I love my new van but my only complaint is that more features did not come standard. It is very roomy. We really like that and with 4 kids that is a must! there are no cup holders for the 2 nd row; which is a MUST in our family. Will have to go and buy something to put back there for their drinks. Also we really wanted a drop down DVD player (LS does not have) but still for the value we got we had to give up some bells and whistles. I think that DVD players in minivans should be standard. Drives and handles well. Liked that there are vents in the back so the kids can get air but I love the fact that the controls are up front with me so that kids won't fight over them (or tear them up!) We got the 2006 as a program car. Had problems with the radio which they are fixing for us now!

i didn't want the traditional minivan, I guess because of the whole soccer mom thing, however this vehicle has the shape of an SUV with the convenience of a minivan. The BEST of both worlds. The storage, seating space and ease of use far surpass that of the SUV. Test drove several SUV's that seat over 5 and NONE seated more than 5 comfortably. The extra seating sacrificed ALL storage space where the Uplander Crossover still has PLENTY of storage and more than comfortable seating. Also test drove several minivans and though some were nice, I prefer the body shape of this to any of the others. After purchasing this vehicle I would NOT buy an SUV.

This van is fun to drive, the power is there when you need it. It goes with 5 inches of snow on the roads. I have haul things and the auto air bags in the rear come in handy. The mpg in the city is good, It last a week with me driving everyday for like 2 hours. The seat are so comfortable, the heated seats are great for the winter time.

I liked this van a lot as far as comfort and great driving. To remove the seats was really the only downfall I had with the vehicle. They were far to heavy for me to take out by myself. I do DJ work and had to take them out frequently.

We have loved our Chevy Uplander for over 10 years. It's very reliable, and very comfortable, whether on a trip or just around town. The kids can watch the DVD movie, and with headphones too, the adults have quiet. The 3rd row seats remove easily and we hauled a dining room table! The 2nd row captain chairs are very comfortable for adults or convenient for the baby car seat. Overall it's been a great minivan for us. No complaints at all!

Good deal for the year and mileage

by from Glenolden, PA on April 24, 2017

This car drives smooth and very steady. It is very roomy and easy to pull out seats. I'm loaded this car with my flea market merchandise. I'm loving it.
