2001 Chevrolet Venture LS 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
We bought this van new, and haven't had many problems with it. I think its very comfortable, compared to other vans we considered buying. It has great safety features like the side air bags. After 10 years the a/c compressor is needing replacement, but we've really not had that many major repairs. Just standard wear and tear stuff and some minor annoyances that have nothing to do with its overall performance. I guess we drive it gently and stay on top of maintenance like oil changes and fluid checks, tire rotation, alignments, brakes etc. These things really make a difference in the life of a car. Overall very happy with my purchase, especially since we've been without car pmt for 6 yrs. :)
Captain's driver seat, automatic sliding door, built in air compressor, comfortable ride
Gas gauge issues, power windows not holding the test of time.
