2004 Chevrolet Venture LS Fwd 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
Bought this is with 24K miles on it, 3.5 yrs later it's at 115K+ and we have had very few complaints. Very reliable, comfortable, great mileage. Got from Raleigh NC to Allenton PA on one tank of gas, with a little to spare. Numerous long trips to the Midwest with no complaints and lots of comfort. Plenty of city driving, too. Basic extended model, no whistles and bells but it does the job. AC stopped working on level 5 this summer, and 4yrs old messed up the CD player with pennies, but other than a set of brakes and some new belts, tires, general maintenance, have been surprisingly happy with an American made vehicle. Would recommend it!
Folding seats, built in child seat
More latch positions on the 60/40 model--it should have at least 3! Cheap cupholder on the 60 side of the second row.
