2004 Chevrolet Venture LS Fwd 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
We searched far and wide for the perfect family van and after owning this Venture for 2 years we are confident we found it. We love the ways the seats fold and move individually, they give you so many options. The gas mileage is great. We got 25mpg driving to FL with a family and luggage to boot. The integrated child seat is awesome, I just wish we had two instead of one. I'm a Ford guy myself, but this Chevy Venture is awesome. My wife and I wanted 8 passenger seating and we could only find it in the Chevy Venture (in 2005). Yah we have 3 kids but what if the grandparents or friends want to ride, 8 passenger is a must. We've had no operational problems and we're closing on 40,000.
8 passenger seating. individual seats in middle row fold. gas mileage. Overall comfort and practicality
More substantial cup holders. Standard power door on both sides instead of one. A little more horse power, but then goes your mpg I suppose. But I want both darn it (lol)
