2004 Chevrolet Venture Minivan LT Entertainer Fwd 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

While I have only owned this van 2 months, it has been in my family since new. It has had hardly any problems. I am very pleased with the leather interior. It has good take off power, but does struggle somewhat on long hills. Earlier models had gasket problems, but that problem was resolved for 2004. The headrest of the 2nd row captains chairs do create a blind spot when backing up, but I have learned to adjust to it. There are also a few rattles from the rear door when going over bumps.


Best Features

Smooth car like ride. Good styling, nice leather interior. Great sound system, DVD system. Built in air pump.


Worst Features

The only improvements I can think of are more power for climbing hills, larger brakes, and the standard power door should be on the driver side.

2004 Chevrolet Venture Minivan LT Entertainer Fwd 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is our second Chevy Venture Warner Brothers Edition. It is the perfect vehicle for an active family. There is nothing like a van for road trips/vacations. The Entertainment center keeps the peace. The only complaint has been the problematic air conditioning - had it in for service and they told me that it works just fine - but it doesn't hardly work at all! Love the fold down 3rd row seat and the 8 passenger capcity.


Best Features

Entertainment Center


Worst Features

Would hope that GM develops the 2nd row roll down windows that another company has for their vans

Review

Overall, I am very satisfied with the venture. I like it's interior design, room comfort and ease/placement of controls. Visibility is as good as any minivans with the headrests now seemingly required in all seat positions we have bucket configurations. Acceleration could be better when a/c is in use - seems a little hesitant. Nice tight road handling for a large vehicle. Car like ride. Entertainment center has been a great distraction for those long family drives, or when carpooling waits take longer than expected :-) Dealer responsiveness by RAMP CHEVY particularly impressive!


Best Features

Love the power seats, power rear windows and power passenger slider. Steering controls are perfect!


Worst Features

I would make a power liftgate standard - the mechanism of the current handle/ latch pinches fingers the first times you use it until you know how to avoid that. I would also hide the sliding door track, (like Dodge)-would look sleeker. Would work on improving offset crash results.

Loved this van when it first came out. I work on them at work{rent-a-car} and they are very reliable and can take a ton of beating. If you have a family this is the vehicle for you.


Best Features

DVD player. Back-up assist


Worst Features

Sport appearance package should be standard
