1998 Chevrolet Venture LS 3dr Ext Minivan


The biggest problem is with the front-
wheel drive transaxle. My first one
failed at 123,000 miles. After a NOS
replacement, the transaxle slips
randomly when accelerating from a
standstill. I really have no
complaints about this vehicle. In
general, it has served me well.
Great gas mileage! With a 25 gallon
tank, it is not unusual for me to go
500 miles between refuelings. This
Venture now has 200,000 miles on it
and you can hear the looseness in the
engine and transmission. I'm about
ready to retire this one before it
leaves me sitting on the side of the
My next vehicle: Another Venture!

Best Features

All dashboard controls are easily accessible. It is very comfortable to ride in [and sleep in] and drives easily. I have no problem driving for hours and hours in this vehicle.

Worst Features

Change the hand crank seat recliners. Strengthen the front-wheel drive transaxle so that it is not so difficult for it to pull a load.
