7 yrs of good exper. w/ 97 Chev Vent Ext
By Chevowner on
1997 Chevrolet Venture LS 3dr Ext Minivan
We bought our 97 Chev Venture Ext LS minivan (2 sliding doors) new and have had an overall very good experience. The 2 problems so far are a check engine light at 75K miles that the dealer reset for $80 (has not come back on yet), and the drivers window switch went out recently & cost $65 to replace. We have 88K miles. It was the quietest and best driving vehicle I have owned so far.
2 sliding doors, autoleveling with built in air pump (have used it much more than I would have predicted), room, tinted windows (aftermarket), cruise control,
Rear air conditioning is highly recommended. The 2nd row seats are not the most comfortable, but the kids don't complain.
