I have had my Uplander for three years and love it. I am always going to auctions and yard sales looking for furniture. I have so much room, have no fear to cart it all home......Love the ride, feel secure in it. Love driving it, I am a five foot, 130 lb. women and do not find it too big to handle. Love, love, love the back up sensor. As far as vans go, it is the best looking one out there, too bad they stopped making them.

Compared to the old Montana of 2003 which this replaced: great improvement(more room) in front foot area which is great for taller long leg people on longer trips. Easy to read gauges, tire pressure monitor lets you know the exact reading for each of the four tires at any time stopped or traveling. The rest is just perfect for me and the wife for going anywhere, easy to park and see around while driving. great for hauling stuff like groceries, and people

Bought this loaded vehicle in 2008 with 6200 miles on it. I now have 230,000 and still running like a champ. Have changed the oil and rotated tires regularly and done maintenance as needed. No problems with front end alignment at all. It looks good, rides comfortably and has plenty of room for passengers or cargo. Seats six comfortably and seven if you're not going a long distance. The only thing that really has bothered me is the cheaply made remote keying units. I've had to replace them three times now. But overall, this has been, and continues to be, a really good investment.

I have owned our uplander for almost 2 years now it has 56000 miles on it. I'd have to say that it has been pretty good. I read other reviews before I bought it and haven't ran into any of those issues. The performance is great it handles well has the get up and go when you need it. The brakes work great to. The styling is different you dont see many things on the road that look like it. Plenty of room inside for my family and myself. Now the bad since we have owned it there has been some electrical issues such as, the car not starting which turned out to be something with the alarm system on the car. Then we had to replace the brake control computer. For us so far it has been a great vehicle

I love the way the van handles-- better than the Dodge or Ford vans we owned. The other vans seemed to tilt if you went around a curb too sharply, the Uplander doesn't do this. It is very comfortable on trips, as well.

We bought this 2008 Uplander late 2008 with 6000 miles on an entended wheelbase LT with air ride suspension loaded with all options. Amazing vehicle that averages near 26mpg and 28mpg hwy. We haul the kids around and I pull the car seats fold the seats flat and hauled 12 sheets of 3/4" plywood home! We will pass 150,000 miles soon and no problems. Hauls plywood, hauls kids, 28mpg. Only thing GM makes that compares is suburban for those who want 12 mpg!!
