1997 Chevrolet Venture Minivan LS 3dr Minivan


Review

We bought this minivan used in '05 for $5000 with 77,000 miles on it. Excellent paint job- little to no rust for a 11 yr old New England van! We've put on 35,000 miles in 2.5 yrs of owning it and spent $5000 in repairs including an engine rebuild and power steering work. That was largely the result of purchasing from an unscrupulous dealer. After the initial expenses, the minivan has done amazingly even in VT winters and I have used it extensively. It came with a roof rack, keyless entry, power windows and cruise control. Assuming if I can keep its annual repair costs under $ 1000, I will keep this car until the rust takes it down!


Best Features

Paint job, keyless entry, cruise, roof rack, powerful engine, gas mileage.


Worst Features

Make the removable seats easier to handle.

Review

Much quieter ride than my Chrysler Mini- Van. I drove it from coast to coast and experienced no problems great fuel economy. Definitely like the load leveling suspension when loaded down.


Best Features

The power door opener is a must.


Worst Features

The rear seats seem a little low for people above 6' tall. The rear trim and panels were too flimsy for my kids. They broke them. Good thing theres about 50 cup holders

It has been a very good car, up until this past year minor things are starting to go wrong with it.
