Manifold, what manifold?

1999 Chevrolet Venture LS 4dr Ext Minivan


Bought our Venture used from CarMax in 2000 with 26,000 miles. We have driven it 154,000 miles since, under nearly every condition, and it's been a great van. We have pulled two different pop-up campers all over Maryland (beach to mountains) and although the 6 cylinders might have complained climbing the mountains, they never gave out. Our two kids have grown up in the van and we always have room for them, friends, travel junk and more. Our van is the default vehicle for road trips because of how well it holds people and stuff. We're not thrilled with the fit and finish of the interior and things have started to fall apart, but nothing unexpected for 180,000 miles.

Best Features

Double sliding doors; removable seats (great for trips to the dump); no major repairs (no manifold problems with ours); takes a lot of abuse and starts every time

Worst Features

Batten down the hatches on the interior. Lots of stuff just falling apart. Attention to detail would be nice. Headlights are sub-optimal.
