Nice Van - Very Frustrated Mechanically

1999 Chevrolet Venture LS 4dr Ext Minivan

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.
