2003 Chevrolet Venture Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
I bought my van in Feb of 2006 with 130000 miles already on it. Im not sure how the previous owners maintained the van, but since I bought it I have changed the oil every 4000-5000 miles. I had to have the transmission rebuilt in 2007, but it now has 270000 miles on it and a daily driver still. The other issues I have had with this van has been the poor headlight vision and frequent blown headlight bulbs and turn signals due to leakage into the headlights. I am very pleased with this van overall and if I was in the market for another van I would buy this same one. Just an fyi from a venture owner.
Headlights visibility and water leakage into the headlights. Of all the things that could be wrong with this design, that is a minor inconvience for the gas mileage and dependability.
