We bought this van after a deer totaled our 1996 Lumina sedan. We've owned 5 Chevrolets before this and all performed wonderfully for us.We needed a car immediately after the deer strike for my wife to drive to work and a good looking 2000 van sat in the lot of my home town dealer, so expecting another trouble free Chevy, we bought the Venture. What a mistake! Rebuilt transmission, replaced the infamous intake gasket, replaced the water pump, ABS quit working, headlights fill up with water when it rains, rear a/c quit, interior/exterior/headlights/tail lights go on and off at random, repair shops can't figure out why. Overheats in hills. No more GM vehicles for this former customer ever again
Comfortable seats. Handles nicely. Lots of interior room. Does well on snowy roads. Very good sound system. Great gas mileage - we average 24.8 mpg combined city and highway. Good looks. Engine has plenty of power for very good performance.
Try actually building some quality into your vehicles, GM!
