2003 Chevrolet Venture LS Fwd 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
Recived this car with 95000 miles from family member, and have a mostly possitive experience. The V6 has plenty of low end torque, so much that we used to use it as a pickup for lumber and things, steering has very good feel for a minivan, although is a bit heavy at low speeds, and is fairly comfortable.
Low end torque
Power steering shuts off after driving through deep puddles
ABS not working well if at all
Traction control either very lax or malfunctioning, easily spin wheels by accident in dry, next to useless foward grip in wet
Transmition slow to kick down and change gear, struggles to hold 2nd and 3rd, wants 4th
Horrible city mpg
Poor rear brakes
