2002 Chevrolet Venture Value Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
Reluctantly I have been driving mini van's since 1989. I purchased this used in '04. I jumped ship from Chrysler products and now wish I had never jumped. The price was right (dealer was going out of business and dumping inventory cheap) but I have been disappointed since driving it away. I feel like I am in an aluminum can. Road noise is the worst in this vehicle. I can't have a conversation with someone in the rear seat without yelling. I replaced the AC condenser at 42,000 due to a faulty mount. I have 55,000 on it presently and feel like I should get rid of it before it becomes afflicted with the issues I read about (i.e. manifold gasket and head gasket).
This thing has somehow managed to get me to and from everywhere I need to go without falling apart.
More or better insulation between the interior and the noisy outdoor world.
