This is my 4th mini-van. Three Plymouth Voyagers were huge headaches. Purchased this vehicle used, new vans are out until the last of three daughters are out of college. The van is very comfortable with 8 passenger seating. The second row middle seat can be folded down to reveal cupholders and doubles as an armrest. Storage is great. Handles well and is very nice to drive. Our grandchildren love the DVD player. Great on vacations. About 24 MPG highway, loaded with people and luggage. At about 65,000 miles it required a transmission overhaul but was covered by my extended warranty. Have had some problems with drivers side power window. Overall we love this vehicle. Great buy as a used car.

The whole family loves this van! I
originally decided on the Venture to
use my GMCard dollars - I paid less
than 22K. We had a 98 Venture that we
were very satisfied with. I was happy
that they had made several
improvements - 2nd row lights, seat
reclining is easier, cupholders are
much better now. It seems minor, but
I also like that the accessories stay
on when you turn off the ignition
until you open the door.
We ended up with the towing pkg and
DVD, which is great - the air
compressor is really handy, DVD keeps
the kids occupied.
I've had no problems with it so far,
but I haven't had it very long. I'll
check back in in a couple years.
