Chevrolet Uplander Recalls

Tire and Loading Information Labels Are Innacurate

The tire and loading information label on the driver's side door frame may be inaccurate. A misprinted label could lead to overloading of the vehicle, which could possibly lead to tire failure and a crash. Owners will be provided with corrected labels and installation instructions. At customers' request, a dealer can install the label for them. The recall began March 31, 2006. The GM recall number is 05109.

Some Cargo Vans May Not Have a Tire And Loading Information Label

Some cargo vans may not have a tire and loading information label on the driver's door frame because they were incorrectly labeled as incomplete vehicles. This does not conform to the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard, and the owner may not know the correct tire size and could overload the vehicle. Owners will be sent new tire and loading information labels and certification labels. If needed, the customer can have the dealer install the labels. The recall began March 15, 2006. The GM recall number is 06009.

Parking Brake Fails Safety Standards May Cause Unintended Vehicle Movement

Certain sport utility vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Safety Standard # 135 "Passenger Car Brake Systems" To meet the standard, vehicles must not move for 5 minutes when stopped on a steep hill with the parking brake applied and the vehicle in neutral. Some of these vehicles failed this test. When the parking brake is released the driver may notice unintended braking while accelerating, decelerating or coasting. This could lead to unintended vehicle movement and cause an accident. The dealer will inspect each rear parking brake caliper and replace free of charge if slippage is noticed. The GM recall # is 05059

I bought this car in 2008, with 5,000 miles. The front passenger door parts (plastic handle) fell off the same month.

In 6 years (80,000 miles) I have replaced the tires 5 times, replaced both axles and struts,brea...
We bought a used 2006 and still owe 2 more years of payments on it. I tell you what I drive with the check engine light on it and find that its weird when I can go to a different town and on the way the engine light will go off then when driving back in town it comes back on and stays on.
