The contact owns a 2006 Chevrolet Uplander. A few days after purchasing the vehicle, the contact began experiencing failures with her vehicle. She had to have all the front end components replaced, including the brakes, alternator, axle, swaybar link, wheel bearings, tie rod, and tires. The dealer repaired the failures, but they are recurring. The failures were covered under warranty; however, the contact had to pay a $50 deductible.

2006 Chevy Uplander, problems occurring since we purchased- intermittent starting, starting then stalling, smells like sulfur and there's a clunking in the front. Recent problems- voltage is varying causing lights to dim and brighten.

- the contact owns a 2006 Chevrolet Uplander with a current and failure mileage of 34,000. The contact stated that sometimes when the vehicle was parked or when driving she would feel the vehicle vibrating. The vibrations were more pronounced on the driver's side. Every time the vehicle went over a bump she heard a rattling noise from under the front of the vehicle, and it sounded like something was loose. The contact had the dealer look at the vehicle, and was told that the wheel bearing needed to be replaced. The contact had the wheel bearing replaced, but the problem recurred. The dealer reprogrammed the power train control module, and replaced power steering. The lights would become dim at times. The dealer replaced the generator voltage regulator. Update 05/22/07
