Is it American quality or just bad luck?

2003 Chevrolet Venture LS Fwd 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


We purchased a Chevy Venture less than
two years ago and have already had to
put nearly $2000 in repair costs into
it. At 38000 miles the ignition switch
failed while I was trying to leave the
grocery store in a snow storm. After
waiting three hours for the promised
emergency road side assistance, I ended
up walking 3 miles back to my house.

At 48000 miles the AC condenser
developed a leak. Currently in the
shop and only costing us $1000. We had
a Ford before this and had same bad
luck. My honda is the only thing we
have never needed repair work on (this
with 140,000 miles). Should I try
Dodge next?

Best Features

Power sliding door (Great for dropping the kids off at school)

Worst Features

Quality and reliability. I've lost my faith in this car, and hate am not looking forward to long road trips this summer.
