1998 Chevrolet Venture LS 3dr Ext Minivan

Review

The biggest problem is with the front- wheel drive transaxle. My first one failed at 123,000 miles. After a NOS replacement, the transaxle slips randomly when accelerating from a standstill. I really have no complaints about this vehicle. In general, it has served me well. Great gas mileage! With a 25 gallon tank, it is not unusual for me to go 500 miles between refuelings. This Venture now has 200,000 miles on it and you can hear the looseness in the engine and transmission. I'm about ready to retire this one before it leaves me sitting on the side of the road. My next vehicle: Another Venture!

Best Features

All dashboard controls are easily accessible. It is very comfortable to ride in [and sleep in] and drives easily. I have no problem driving for hours and hours in this vehicle.

Worst Features

Change the hand crank seat recliners. Strengthen the front-wheel drive transaxle so that it is not so difficult for it to pull a load.
