1999 Chevrolet Venture LS 4dr Ext Minivan
Bought used (9 mo. old) w/14k miles. Initial problem: A/C had funny smell when used 1st time each spring. Very roomy. Love the features incl. elec. pkg; seating for 8; 2 built-in child seats. Had it now exactly 10 years. Issues with automatic door lock - was a recall issue. Pretty reliable given we've put 100,000 mi on it. Good family vehicle. 10 day Family trip (1200 mi ea way) last summer with no problems. over the years we have done only handful of repairs (water pump, manifold gasket,belt tension gear) Left rear tail light bulb out every 3 mths; driver's airbag light intermittently on; Our other car is a CAMRY -- which we LOVE
Roominess; seating for 8; electric pkg; seat configuration changeable; can hold a lot of people or a lot of cargo or combo of some of each.
