2001 Chevrolet Venture LS 4dr Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


I bought the van with 140K on it - salesperson vehicle. No big deal I thought! Ha! Head gastket went in first month (covered under the extended warranty I purchased). A/C didn't work, replaced 3 wheel bearings at $680 each, struts $777, engine light on almost all the time - various things replaced, blower system didn't work - wouldn't switch from one position to another $1000, then wouldn't work in position 1,2 $300. I added it up on Christmas day night and in 2 1/2 yrs I've spent now $7300.00 in repairs! It has been such a HUGE disappointment. I've always been a GM person but no more. Oh ya, gas gauge doesn't work AGAIN - this is the third time and it is a $700 fix!

Best Features

Comfortable seats for long drives, love the overhead computer showing outside temp, compas, etc. Very comfortable to drive - feels like a car.

Worst Features

Reliabilty is very poor - needs improvements in all areas listed above. Also it really needs rear heat/air - the blower is not powerful enough to push it back to the very back.
