We replaced an Olds Bravada with this
Venture, so the bar was set a little
high for features. So far it's a very
comfortable ride, easy to drive, with
one minor problem to date (a left
headlight that holds moisture) that's
being addressed as I write this.
Storage is excellent overall,
especially in the van's rear. I miss
OnStar, but it wasn't available on this
trim level. Mine is the 7-seat version
with leather and captain's chairs.
Comfortable front seats, very good
visibility, decent performance and
handling for a minivan. The parking
assist feature is useful, and the
automatic side doors are nice to have.
Better ergonomics up front (a change
holder and a cell phone holder'd be
nice, and what's that bin at the
bottom of the stack for, anyway?), auto-
dimming mirrors, and a power rear
hatch. Seat tilt/removal could be
easier as well. GM radios should have
an aux input jack.
