Car Displayed: 2008 Chevrolet Uplander LS 3.9L V6

The 2008 Chevrolet Uplander LS is a somewhat easy vehicle to maintain. Accessing the cabin air filter won’t be a problem as it’s located behind a couple of panels in the rear of the glove box which removes without the use of any tools. The transmission fluid levels are easy to monitor given the quick access to the dipstick. The tail light housing is easy to remove following the removal of a couple of torx bolts, allowing for relatively reliable bulb changes.

However, the 2008 Chevrolet Uplander LS has its downsides. Multiple different tools will be needed to remove multiple different fasteners that secure the headlight housing before you can access the bulbs, which won’t allow for reliable changes. Accessing the battery may be problematic given the deep, obstructed position of it. The spare tire is located underneath the vehicle, running the risk of rusting to the undercarriage.
