My Venture Van is a Money Pit
By Thompson Family on


2000 Chevrolet Venture LS 4dr Ext Minivan


From an appearance standpoint, I am pleased with my 2000 Venture, and enjoy driving it. As far as quality of the build, it blows me away how GM continues to flood the market with poor quality vehicles with embarrasing resale values. Among the mechanical problems I've had in my first 3 years of owning it (between 45,000-90,000 on the odometer): -Expensive leaking manifold gasket/coolant problems at 50,000 miles -Expensive ABS brake issues -Expensive front end & ball joint replacement -Warrantied sliding door Issues -Int. and Ext. electrical constantly flickers because of a short somewhere. - Fuel gauge always pegged on Full until the low fuel light comes on (then it shows empty)

Best Features

-Ceiling computer panel (MPG, temp, Avg.MPH, etc), rear air, storage throughout

Worst Features

-Make a "Clear all" option on the ceiling computer panel (MPG,temp,Avg.MPH, etc) -Abandon the entire Dex-Cool concept -Unbury the battery
