Used 2004 Chevrolet Venture LT Entertainer Fwd 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A) Consumer Reviews
I bought my 2004 Venture in 2008 used. Good gas mileage roomy rides good. Starting to have problems air went out at 100,000 miles. Rusting out bad on the panels below the doors and the paint is peeling. Am having trouble with driver side window. I now have only 117,000 miles on it . I would keep it forever but it is had it's good days . Other than routine repairs brakes etc it's been a really reliable van will hate to loose it.
Great reliability over the last 5 years. Handling is good for a minivan. Road noise is minimal.
Overall, I am very satisfied with the venture. I like it's interior design, room comfort and ease/placement of controls. Visibility is as good as any minivans with the headrests now seemingly required in all seat positions we have bucket configurations. Acceleration could be better when a/c is in use - seems a little hesitant. Nice tight road handling for a large vehicle. Car like ride. Entertainment center has been a great distraction for those long family drives, or when carpooling waits take longer than expected :-) Dealer responsiveness by RAMP CHEVY particularly impressive!
This is our second Chevy Venture Warner Brothers Edition. It is the perfect vehicle for an active family. There is nothing like a van for road trips/vacations. The Entertainment center keeps the peace. The only complaint has been the problematic air conditioning - had it in for service and they told me that it works just fine - but it doesn't hardly work at all! Love the fold down 3rd row seat and the 8 passenger capcity.
I used to own a Ford Windstar..this blows it away. The Traction control is wonderful.I have not slid once. The dvd player is a lifesaver with the kids. It is smooth and powerful. Gas mileage is great. I drove 335miles before filling up!
