ReviewUntil now, I've been pretty happy with my 1999 Chevrolet Venture LT. But on May 6, 02, I found out that the manifold gasket has failed & replacement gaskets are on a nation wide back order. Service at Anderson Chev. in Los Gatos, CA have no idea when the repair will be made. I have a rental car for the duration. I was told the manifold is made of aluminum & the engine block is made of cast iron. The two metals expand and contract at different rates stressing the manifold gasket. Long term prognosis: frequent manifold gasket replacement.
Best FeaturesAC works great; decent sound system; it is quiet and comfortable. Until recently, I've been happy with it.
Worst FeaturesHow about making the engine block and manifold out of the same metals?
