"This van has been absolutely the best vehicle by far, that I've driven or owned. I've had very minor problems with it, outside of regular maintenance. It has great comfort, interior finish is layed out very well, and is easy to maintain. The motor and transmission have given me zero problems. Brakes have seen regular maintenance and the added rear assist air suspension has worked like a charm. The only problem was the rear wiper motor. If left on, after leaving the vehicle will burn out. The hauling and storage capacity in the rear (seats remove) provides ample cargo space.It is a little underpowered if hauling a trailer that weighs more than 2500 lbs. though."
"This has been a great van with lots of extras and a lot of thought put into the design. It has been a wonderful family car! Seats are very comfortable, all the extra's work well.Love the heated seats and remote start. My only complaint is that the gas milage has not been as good as I expected . . Im an easy driver on acceleration and brakes."
"This is the last of the GM Mini Vans and I am very sorry to see them go. I had 2 Venture's before this Buick and I have loved them all. The first one I had we were on our way camping loaded with kids, dogs and food and were hit almost head on by a college kid going way too fast and the car was totaled, but all my kids and animals were fine. Not a scratch on anyone. Solid vehicle, great mileage for a big van, looks great definatly not like mom's vehicle and the DVD is great for keeping kids entertained on long drives."
Pros: "Comfort. MPG. Ease of use. Great cargo capacity"
Cons: "What you get is what you see in the showroom."

"Owned vehicle since new. Always serviced by the same dealer every 3,000-4,000 miles. No problems other than those normally associated with age. Excellent condition with no scratches, marks, or dents. Recent round trip from Austin to Fort Worth just under 28MPG. Great vehicle."
