the rear sliding door on the drivers side opens when vehicle is parked and engine is off. it also opens when i enter the drivers side as i close the drivers door. yesterday it opened about 4 times within seconds before i finally got it to stop. if i leave the vehicle in the garage unlocked it will open sometime later after i have gone into the house. the only way i can keep it from opening is to make sure it is locked. i am afraid it is going to open while i am in motion. *tr

one day i got into my vehicle and the driver side rear sliding door wouldn't latch all of the way. after about 10 attempts to get the door to latch completely, it finally did. but while on the road, i heard the warning sound letting me know that my driver side rear sliding door was ajar. the door didn't completely open, but was cracked as i was driving. i had taken my vehicle to get another repair done under warranty and i asked them if they could fix the sliding door problem as well. they had decided that it was the seals and replaced all of them, but the problem has occurred since then and now my warranty has expired and i don't know why this is still occurring. *tr

since purchasing this vehicle in january of 2006 we have been required to make extensive repairs on an on going basis. the vehicle has to be aligned & balanced almost monthly which has resulted in us replacing the tires on 3 different occasions. the brakes have been replaced twice and the rotors have been turned twice in the past year. the most recent incident occurred 3 wks ago when my wife was driving home on a 55 mph 2 lane road when suddenly the check engine & check oil light came on. the vehicle just stopped. upon towing it to a local auto repair shop we were informed the timing belt broke which warped the cam shaft. gm would do nothing until we towed it again, this time to a gm dealership. the vehicle was found to have extensive problems from the engine, to the timing belt, camp shaft, pistons, plugs and much more. *tr

i would like to make a report about my chevy uplander. i have taken my vehicle at least 5 times to the gm dealer about my automatic sliding doors being fixed. i can lock the doors and go into a store and come out and the door will be wide open. i will close the doors and it will close and then it will ding and open back up. recently we went on a trip to orlando, fl. and we stopped to use the restroom when we came back out the door would not close. my husband physically had to shut it and it wouldn't stop dinging. my husband called our dealership again and they sent us to a place in gainesville, fl. they told us it was a relay switch gone bad they unplugged it , our dealership asked if we would bring it back to them and they would fix it. when we brought it back they stated that all it was the keyless entry pad was not working. i don't want to be riding down the road with my 4 year old and 7 year and have my doors open and something happen to them. please help! *jb

both passenger sliding doors have malfunctioned on numerous times. problems include failure to close properly. on one occasion the left passenger sliding door opened while driving through town. other times the door will not open, may open but will not shut at all. the most common problem involves the sliding doors starting to close then stopping and opening back. often several tries are needed to get the door closed. on other occasions the "beeping" alarm associated with the doors will go off and not stop for more than 10 minutes - even after the car has been turned off. the van has been in the shop about 9 or 10 times over the past year. each time a different remedy is offered (replacing door latches, weather stripping, etc) to no avail. now chevrolet will not work on it unless the problem is presenting itself at the time we take it. *jb

the car intermittently tries to start the crank keeps turning but does not start. as well as i was traveling on freeway with a big rig on the side of me and the car stalled and steering locked. thank god i managed to glide over to the exit lane. i was terrified as was my passenger. when i looked at the gauges i noticed i was out of gas, but i had just put in $20 . chevy sent out tow truck to give me gas, but car still would not start. finally hours later car was taken to chevy. when uplander was finished they said it was electrical short due to water in lines. weather was great no rain or puddles anywhere. uplander almost stalled on another night lights dimmed and tires stopped ,but then it worked fine. strange very!!! driver side sliding door opens or shuts when it wants. my daughter was in her car seat and i pushed button to close door she put her foot up towards door and it shut and locked. luckily her tennis shoes were a little big so only minor bruising occurred. however my daughter is terrified of car. also i have already put 6 new tires on car because they were bald at 13,000 miles first time. tires in front are bald again. uplander is not stable to drive on highway. *tr
