2006 Chevrolet Uplander Reviews
Just replaced the battery with a Super Start 34-72 (the recommended replacement battery at O'reilly) and lost electrical to gauges, radio, interior lights, backup lights, and ventilation controls. None of the fuses are blown and the battery is hooked up correctly.
We bought our 2006 Uplander in 2007 & for the MOST part we love it. The mild issues we have are the fact that we have to replace the brakes more often than we have ever had to do w/ our other vehicles & there seems to be some sort of electrical problem as the dash lights tend to flicker slightly. The MAIN issue we have is the fact that there are ZERO rear air vents! This is a big deal for us...
I bought my 2006 three years ago. I have driven it all over the country in all types of climates and road types. It is a road warrior, great on gas and very comfortable. On the flip side, this vehicle has an array of electrical problems which can prove costly.
