it performs well Last summer i shuttled a couple of kids to a camp and they said it was kind of uncomfortable. Gas mileage could be a little better It is the overall design that is really blah (hello i am a college student!!!!) The inside is nice but the black dashboard is a little too bland. The outside is worse There is no chevy logo on the back and the one in the front is too small Door handles are easy to hold but the sliding doors are heavy
Rear climate control system Power vent windows acceleration the grille up front looks like it is from a benz
BRAKES better sound system better quality better outside look (HELLO??) lighter sliding doors Right hand power sliding door more power floor shifter instead of on the steering wheel
I like the gas mileage and the responsive engine, but the Caravan is nicer to drive and feels more solid on the road. I had to replace the intake manifold gasket at 90000 kms, got partial payment from a GM goodwill warranty but had to replace valve lifters as well because antifreeze had leaked into the engine, cost out of own pocket about a thousand bucks. The body began to rust out prematurley along the roof line above the windsheild, the rocker panels, bottom of rear hatch, the hood and front fenders. I have had to replace 3 windsheild wiper motors at a cost of about 200 each (aftermarket )GM replacement was about 350. Water pump went at about 150000km, brakes shot at 110000kms,etc
Peppy engine, handling is okay, starts in any weather, fuel mileage good, wife likes the way it drives
Redesign the wiper system, use better quality material, better warranty protection especially when there are obvious defects such as intake manifold gaskets, and premature rusting of body panels
My sister has a Caravan. I like that van, but when we tried the Venture we didn't think it twice. It's very comfortable. The only problem is my wife wants to drive it all the time. No repairs until now, only normal mantenance. The electrical system works fine but there are some minimal issues like the lights blink once when you press the brakes.
I love the engine sound, good acceleration. Interior and exterior look. Comfort.
