Yeah, I too have been taken to the
dealership cleaners on the Intake
Manifold gaskets. At 51,000 miles,
a "new" kit was required. Very
expensive for such low mileage. GM
should reimburse at least part of the
cost. I am not a satisfied GM person
now. Will not buy another Venture or
GM van in general.
Overall, it has all the standard
features of any good minivan. Mileage
GM should own up to the design problem
on the Intake Manifold / gaskets.
