2008 4dr Minivan, ext. 240-horsepower 3.9L V6
4-speed automatic FWD
We just traded in our '08 Uplander, with 108,000 miles on it, because it is falling apart. We've spent $3,000 in the past year on repairs -- shocks, bearing, water pump, steering rack, more. And the interior is just broken -- cupholder, trim pieces, weatherstrips, they just break or fall off.
2007 4dr Minivan 240-horsepower 3.9L V6
4-speed automatic FWD
Crank case seal has been replaced 3 times already...only have 15,000 on it...and it still drips oil.
2007 4dr Minivan 240-horsepower 3.9L V6

Left me stranded in the first month for electrical issues Front end repaired 3 times with less than 40000km Passenger side airbag loose and rattling returned for repair on three seperate occasions to no avail,I will no longer allow a child in that seat
