Welcome to the forums Brady!
I noticed you have an 05 Uplander, is yours a FWD or all wheel Drive?
How many miles do you have on the van now?

I was thinking about a AWD van for next winter out West and was wondering how the AWD Uplander handles in snow etc.
Also at 150K miles have you had any reliability issues?

we had one were i used to work, it handled good in the snow. but like other minivans it only gets 18-20mpg real world driving, and for someone with big feet and legs it very uncomfortable.
