Too many problems, going to Honda
By Brad on


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


We have had to replace the A/C condensor at 60,000 miles. The rocker panels are both rusted due to open seams at the welds. My local dealer says that nothing can be done because it is past the warranty although it is a defect. It is currently losing oil at about 2 quarts per 4000 miles. Probably a bad head gasket. I am trying to trade it, but the trade in offers are only around $4300. Terrible for a vehicle that stickered for $26000 4.5 years ago. We had a Montana previously that had to be towed three times. The last time was for a shot transmission at 37000 miles while I was 600 miles from home. I must say that after a nasty discussion, GM did replace the transmission at no cost.

Best Features

Gas mileage, roominess, and interior design.

Worst Features

Offer a better warranty and repair defects regardless of mileage unless the vehicle is ready for the scrap heap.
