1997 Chevrolet Venture Minivan LS 3dr Ext Minivan


Review

I bought this mini van in the year 2000. Have had no mechanical problems. Had to replace front brakes once, other then that has been a terrific van. Doesn't feel like your driving a van. No plastic this or that like you can find in other vans like the aerostar.


Favorite Features

Is comfortable, roomy and cosmetically sound. v-6 engine has great exclleration.

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.


Favorite Features

The power door opener is a must.


Suggested Improvements

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

Review

bought new. had to dealer 3 times for muddy antifreeze. Now the manifold gasket is leaking, and waterpump. all problems noted on other reviews. I love driving it, but can't stand the maintenance problems. 6 years old, only 53,000 mi. Why can't chevy build a vehicle to last. I'm looking into Toyota next time.


Favorite Features

built in child car seat.


Suggested Improvements

fix the dex cool problems and manifold gasket problems.

Review

I NOW HAVE OVER 102k MILES ON THIS CAR AND HAVE HAD NO PROBLEMS. I DO REGULAR MAINTENANCE WHICH I BELIEVE IS THE KEY TO THE LONGEVITY OF ANY PIECE OF MACHINERY. WE HAVE JUST RETURNED FROM A 3700 MILE TRIP WHERE OUR HIGHWAY GAS MILEAGE AVERAGED 28MPG. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.


Suggested Improvements

INTERIOR AMENITIES COULD STAND IMPROVEMENT.
