Our 2007 Uplander bought with 11,000 miles now has 70,000 miles and we have had the same problems as everyone before us. New brakes, rotors, tires, and still the front end shakes, steering wheel shakes, and grinding when you turn. Rear-end sounds like it is going to fall off. Side passenger door works sometimes (not electric door kids manually close it) well when we can get it open. Cat-converter going out smells like sulfur. Can't afford to fix everything,and now the fuel tank says it is empty, but just filled yesterday. Come on Chevy what the heck is going on with these vans? If you know someone who is thinking of buying one talk them out of it. These cars are failing us and we don't have the money to fix them or replace them. Recall? Whoops it said didn't fill in exhaust-emissions or suspension-steering, I wanted to rate them a zero, so if you see my 1 star on these it really means 0.
My 2007 Uplander has been a very good van up till 70,000 miles. Now all of a sudden, when braking or making sharp turns, it is making a grinding rubbing noise. The dealer checked it out and said the tires are moving on the wheels. I marked the wheels but see no movement. They said I am ready for new tires, but why put them on if that is not the problem. Please, any ideas...
I bought a 2007 uplander 1 month ago. The engine seems very strong. Has 60,000 miles. Lots of tire noise. Drives me nuts. Very roomy. Rides like a four wheel drive truck. You can feel every bump. I'm not sure about the 3.9 engine. Never owned one. We'll see this winter. I think I made a big mistake.
I bought this vehicle for it's affordability and seating. I got all the extras and it has services our family well. My big complaint is electrical. My right rear door never engages well. One time it fell completely off. Fortunately it was under warranty. Now it is not and it is always dinging at me. I try to open and shut it again, but then usually ahve to get out and do it manually. I have also had to replace the fob umpteen times for defect. The belt holders(ones that stop from choking you) are almost all broken in first year. I did run a home dayucare though. I love it over all, just wish they would come up with recall for parts on door.
I had this vehicle for 1.5 years and we have 2 at my place of work. It is uncomfortable to ride in very far. Parts are hard to get and the vehicle is hard to work on. the traction in the westren NY winters is very bad. Also repair manuals don’t exist.
I really love this van. Has plenty of power. Havnt had any major issues.The only problem i seem to be having is the abs keeps kicking on. Besides that though im happy with it. my wife loves it. wish it had a lil tougher suspension in the rear. cause when we travel we pack it full and it sags pretty bad.
We bought a 2007 Uplander and have driven it for around the country for over a year. We love it. It is very comfortable: long trips in other cars would get my back to hurting, and in the Uplander, my back never hurt. We have had absolutely no mechanical problems with it so far, and I like the way it drives.
Got a free rental car at the body shop and they gave us a Chevrolet Uplander and it was no comparison to a Toyota Previa or Honda Odyssey, It had no power and road like a truck, the engine and transmission seemed like they were not made for each other. the brakes were OK.
