1998 Chevrolet Venture 3dr Ext Minivan


Bought this van in 2000 at 24,000
miles, currently has almost 90,000 and
still no rust. No major repairs except
at 83,000 the intake gasket seal leaked
(about $700). We live in snowy midwest
and traction is better than other FWD's
we've owned. Mileage is about 16/23.
The flexible seating continues to be
the best part of owning this van.
Driver's seat is not comfortable on
long trips if you need low back
support. A recurring annoyance: having
to grab cups over 16 oz. when
cornering. Overall, I am sad to be
saying good-bye to my old friend but
I'll be test-driving the 2003-04 models
before the weekend is over.

Best Features

SPlit seat flip & fold/removal; integrated child seats.

Worst Features

Design seats with lumbar support, make cup holders deeper, add grocery bag hooks to back of third row, add stereo controls to steering wheel.
