What a lemon

1998 Chevrolet Venture 3dr Minivan


I've had nothing but expensive problems
with this van ever since the warranty
ran out at 36K miles (coincidence?).
The service engine light was on for
well over a year while my garage tried
to find the cause. I paid for
everything from new spark plugs/cables
to an oxygen sensor to an ignition
control switch (just to name a few
things) while they performed
exploratory surgery on my van and now
at just over 73K miles, they are
telling me the transmission is kaput.
No wonder Ford's
motto is "Quality is job 1" because
it's obviously NOT GM's.

Best Features

I have to be honest...I'm at a loss in this category

Worst Features

Suggested improvements? Too many to list. Chevy needs to go back to the drawing board on this one. In the mean time...I'm buying a Ford Windstar.
