2002 Chevrolet Venture LT Fwd 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

My major problem is I have a heating problem when driving in 50 degrees or lower - The interior does not heat up as expected, I freeze in winter time. I don't know if it is just my Venture Van or if others are experiencing this same problem.

2002 Chevrolet Venture LT Fwd 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Yes, this van has some "minor issues" like no interior light when the door opens, windshield wipers sticking in the upright position and some rear tail-turn signal-brake light problems, but this is a damned good reliable vehicle. It has almost 190,000 miles on it and she is still running smooth.


Best Features

Comfortable, with 2 side doors and plenty of passenger and storage space. All the places to plug into.


Worst Features

The dome lights should come on when opening the door.

2002 Chevrolet Venture LS Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

My housekeeper owns a 2002 Chevy Venture LS V6 FWD that my father brought her in 2001 as a Christmas gift for being a fabulous housekeeper. She clearly loves it and does not want to give it up for even a new 2012 Nissan Quest? ODD but I hate that van, it does not have a quick take off like most vans in that class, the gas gage is broke so she can only use 75% of her tank, the headlights and highbeams are not bright at all. In fact at night you can even see the road well. The interior lights don't work when the doors are open only when you turn the lights on it the van from the switch. It's just a mess. Handling is even worst cause there is so much body roll.


Best Features

It has a smooth ride in the highway

Review

Bought this van from a repo auction a year ago. replaced front brakes, and intake gaskets which are normal for this engine. I have put $500 in the van. I have never had any problems with this van! I love it and so do my kids. We love the auto sliding doors and I like the parking aide. I have 170,000 on her and she runs great! Wouldn't hesitate to drive this anywhere. Bought an entertainment center for a big screen home in it.


Best Features

Parking Aide, auto sliding doors, huge room with the chairs out.


Worst Features

None

2002 Chevrolet Venture Warner Bros. Fwd 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is my 2nd Venture. I've had the WB van for 4 year and all it's been is a money pit! The upper intake manifold was replace at 5 years old 68,000 miles, transmission was replaced at 88,000 miles, air shocks, brakes front and back and O2 sensor all replaced within the past few weeks. Now the muffler has a huge whole which is $600. to replace, the low intake gasket is leaking, oil is leaking(had a oil change 500 miles ago and now there's no oil in the van at all). As I talk to other Venture owners and the dealership where I get it worked on at this is a common engine issue! I cringe every time I get into the van! This van as doesn't hold its value and tens to rust out at the sliding doors.


Best Features

Kids like the DVD when it works, power doors, parking aid, easy to drive anf park.


Worst Features

MOTOR!
