1997 Chevrolet Venture LS 3dr Ext Minivan

Review

bought in Jan 2001 with 67k miles. have grown to hate it quickly. the power sliding door had 2 recalls and still doesn't work right. Now have a recall for steering. Dexcool turns to mud, and the dealer will flush it out for nearly 400.00. now, with 97,000 miles on it,we have a new transmission. Dexcool turned to mud again. Jiffy Lube flushed it 5 times to and would not put dexcool in. They insisted on standard green anti-freeze. it works. had to replace both headlamps. seems the covers are known to fall off after so many years. had to replace both rear signal units. condensation got in and shorted them out. This thing is a money draining nightmare.

Favorite Features

roomy, comfortable, enjoyable to drive and ride in.

Suggested Improvements

where do I begin? how about with GM owning up to the fact that dexcool has major problems?
