2002 Chevrolet Venture LS Fwd 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
I bought this car after driving an Outback to Chicago and knowing I couldn't drive it for long rides. So I bought this and 3 weeks later drove to Denver, 1700 miles. Since then I've driven it 4 times to Denver and twice to Dallas. It's extremely comfortable, reasonable gas mileage, and a huge cargo space. I'd buy another one if they still made them.
I'd say the best part is the huge cargo area.
The only improvement would be to put in stow and go seating.
