2003 Chevrolet Venture LS Fwd 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
I bought this van brand new because I got a great deal. It's a little cheesy (needs extended visors, pockets on back of front seat, road noise a little high, fit and finish not very well done), but I find it comfortable, easy to drive, and thus far, extremely reliable.
Anti-lock brakes; roominess--seats 8 and fits a ton of stuff; has been very reliable; power sliding door
Better fit and finish, initial build quality; brighter headlights, pockets on back of front seats (It's a Minivan, Hello! Kids with junk!), better visors; windows in the 2nd row that go down like front row windows.
