Review

We love our Venture. We have had it almost a year, purchased new. We previously had Caravan and had an Odyssey for about 1 yr and had major problems that I was told were normal, NOT! I would buy another Venture when the time comes.


Favorite Features

Great gas mileage especially for this mom on the go!

Review

Great ride, excellent features both interior and exterior, but under the hood a nightmare. Nice to hear I am not the only one who experienced an intake manifold gasket problem. Dealer just happened to find, yeah right, the manifold gasket was leaking when I brought the van in for recall on sliding door latch. Van had just over 47,000 miles at the time of repair, which is much too early for this failure. Very expensive to repair, but found an authorized service shop that replaced the gasket more economically than dealerhip. GM will not reimburse for repairs, I think is justified for a poor design. .


Favorite Features

Comfortable front adjustable seats, excellent noise insulation package, along with convenient sliding side doors.


Suggested Improvements

Please redesign the manifold gasket.

Review

OUR CHEVY VENTURE IS WONDERFUL!!! it is a very comfortable ride. the children even love the van. they think its so cool with the sliding door, cd player,the seperate seating instead of one big all together seating, they seem to have more room. we have had a plymouth van in the past and it does not compare to the venture!! there has not been anything we have not love about the van as of yet. if you want a fully loaded minivan and the comfort of sitting home on your sofa, and a great, reliable van then the chevy venture is the one for you!!! hope you all enjoy your ride as much as we do.


Favorite Features

our favorite feature is probably the seating, with 2 dogs and three kids we still have plenty of room for all the grociers!!! we also love the interior coloring and comfort. we never thought a vehicle could be so enjoyable.


Suggested Improvements

right now we have no real suggestions for improvements.

Review

Extended cab gives owner the ability to drive and have lots of space. Good and reliable. Good inner space and has few maintenance problems. Mine has 86K miles and has been no trouble. Front wheel drive requires a slower than normal start - no kicking this into 0- 60 in 6 seconds!! People confuse that issue for trans problems.


Favorite Features

Good interior design. Lots of space with 3 rows of seats. Seats removable. Good sound system. Cup holders are well placed.


Suggested Improvements

Make front seats longer so that they are more comfortable. Too short in the seat part. Otherwise excellent vehicle.

Review

Bought this van new and have loved everything about it until I hit 60,000 miles. Simultaneously, the transmission had to be rebuilt, then the intake manifold gaskets were found to be leaking internally and externally. Fortunately the gasket problem was found soon enough so no major problems were caused by coolent in the oil. THIS IS A MAJOR PROBLEM WITH THIS ENGINE and the fix is not cheap. However the dealer is fixing it at no cost to me. GM knows this is a major problem and should issue a recall in my opinion.


Favorite Features

Aside from the mechanical problems I have encountered, I really like this van. Space, driveability, seats etc.


Suggested Improvements

Fix the mechanical systems. I won't be buying another one if I have to put in a new transmission and gaskets every 60,000 miles.

Review

I bought it because the price was right. I don't regret it, but it has been in the shop too often. Most fit and finish problems, but there was one serious engine problem.


Suggested Improvements

Chevy needs to build a more reliable car.

Review

I bough my Chevrolet Venture on 08/01/1999 with 79 miles. I am driving 300 miles on Florida highway every day. I had to change the engine oil and filter every 5000 miles; transmission oil and filter every 60,000 miles; tune-up and O2 sensor at 110,000 miles. My Venture has 180,000 miles now and the engine still is very quiet. It is making 26 MPG on Highway and 19 MPG on city. Let see if it can make 300,000 miles with original engine and transmission. This is a true history.


Suggested Improvements

I just recommend improving the seat comfort. It is very dificult to replace the back sparks and cables in the engine tune-up.
