2002 Chevrolet Venture LS Fwd 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
Bought new. In 90,000 miles, I've only had to replace a power steering pump. Everything else has been routine maintenance. The original tires were noisy, but that's easy to fix. We love it, and don't know what we'll get when it's time to get something else. I think a lot of people just like to complain. Not everyone is having bad luck with these vehicles.
25 mpg on trips with a pretty full load. Ride quality on the highway.
Better tires from the factory, and better brakes, too. After upgrades, this vehicle's solid on both fronts.
