1997 Chevrolet Venture LS 3dr Ext Minivan


bought in Jan 2001 with 67k
miles. have grown to hate it quickly.
the power sliding door had 2 recalls
and still doesn't work right. Now have
a recall for steering. Dexcool turns to
mud, and the dealer will flush it out
for nearly 400.00. now, with 97,000
miles on it,we have a new transmission.
Dexcool turned to mud again. Jiffy
Lube flushed it 5 times to and would
not put dexcool in. They insisted on
standard green anti-freeze. it works.
had to replace both headlamps. seems
the covers are known to fall off after
so many years. had to replace both rear
signal units. condensation got in and
shorted them out. This thing is a money
draining nightmare.

Best Features

roomy, comfortable, enjoyable to drive and ride in.

Worst Features

where do I begin? how about with GM owning up to the fact that dexcool has major problems?
