2004 Chevrolet Venture Plus Fwd 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This vehicle has performed more than adequately. Rides smoothly, swallows more cargo than previous SUV we owned and only cost $20,500 after rebates and discounts--saved $6000 over Honda Odyssey. True, resale is less now than other minivans but this matters only if you plan on selling it quickly. At 58,000 miles, only the rotors needed to be replaced and othewise no problems noted. Interior could be more high-class but we didn't buy this car for style but for basic transportation and it has fulfilled this function well. Even gas mileage is good--25-26 miles in suburban driving. Overall, very satisfied.


Best Features

Gas mileage, durability, cargo space.


Worst Features

More sound insulation, stronger engine would be nice although gas mileage would surely suffer then.

Vehicle

2004 Chevrolet Venture Plus Fwd 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

A bit of a "Plain Jane" van, however, very dependable and no repairs to date. Currently have 65000 KM's


Best Features

Gas mileage, payload, and ride quality.


Worst Features

Horn is low volume/quality and should be upgraded. I'm never sure it can be heard by other drivers. It's been a bone of contention with me since I purchased the vehicle. My dealer tells me it can't be upgraded unless I go to an after market product. Miss not having a tachometer.

2004 Chevrolet Venture LT Entertainer Fwd 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

While I have only owned this van 2 months, it has been in my family since new. It has had hardly any problems. I am very pleased with the leather interior. It has good take off power, but does struggle somewhat on long hills. Earlier models had gasket problems, but that problem was resolved for 2004. The headrest of the 2nd row captains chairs do create a blind spot when backing up, but I have learned to adjust to it. There are also a few rattles from the rear door when going over bumps.


Best Features

Smooth car like ride. Good styling, nice leather interior. Great sound system, DVD system. Built in air pump.


Worst Features

The only improvements I can think of are more power for climbing hills, larger brakes, and the standard power door should be on the driver side.

Vehicle

2004 Chevrolet Venture Plus Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This van is strong , quick and extremely roomy given its short wheelbase. I have used it to tow a 21 ft. open fisherman to a ramp 20 miles away and it will perform quite well for its small engine size although it has not been designed for that kind of abuse.


Best Features

The electronic mileage computing system is very good when you are on long trips and low fuel condititions . The system also has a compass which is good for people like myself (always lost)


Worst Features

Rear Disc Brakes should be included as an option to shorten stopping distances and take added weight push of trailer buffs like myself.

Vehicle

2004 Chevrolet Venture LS Fwd 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Very satisfied with the seating capacity and interior roominess. Designed to be able to do a lot with the seating (i.e. 2nd row features individual bucket seats and 3rd row is fold down for major storage capacity in rear of vehicle. Very good on gas mileage. Vehicle does not handle well. Typical of front wheel drive vehciles. Does not perform well on substandard roads. You feel too many bumps.
