Uplander 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 13,000 miles
- the contact owns a 2005 Chevrolet Uplander. The transmission failed at 11,000 miles. The mechanic repaired it instead of replacing, it and it continued to leak. The dealer replaced the transmission, and the new one from the manufacturer was also leaking. The vehicle was in the repair shop for 16 days, and the new transmission had to be resealed. When starting the vehicle the ignition was sticking in the start mode for 2 minutes after releasing the key. The passenger automatic sliding door did not latch shut, no warning indicator light appeared nor did it register with onstar as the door was being un latched. When attempting to open the door it will not open because the latch did not engage. The dealer was unable to diagnose the failure. The contact was concerned about the safety risk involved. The contact filed a complaint with the BBB, and spoken to GM about all of the failures. The gear shiftws very difficult to move from park to reverse. All of the above listed failures occurred frequently. The most recent was the door and the starter. The starter failure occurred 15 to 20 times. The gear shift failed every time the vehicle was driven. The door failed 20 times. The current and failure mileage was 13,000. The engine would crank, but it wouldn't start, the drivers heated seat was inoperative, there was an oil leak from the crankshaft seal, the power sliding door was inoperative. Updated 03/30/07.

Uplander

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,997 miles
After 30 days of owning 2005 Chevy Uplander, dealership had to send a tow truck to come pick my van up on the side of the highway. The transmission had gone out. After several months it has started acting up again. To the point they have replaced the transmission. The jerking sensation when putting the van into reverse is still there.
