Pros: "Very dependable. This is a " must see " van"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"Purchased new and has had excellent care. Every service record is available.
Very dependable, never had a starting or drive train problem. Power side doors ( both sides ) are great, they add easy entrance and egress.
If they still made a Venture van I would buy one tomorrow."
Pros: "love driving it, plenty of room, family vehicle"
Cons: "hard to find tires"

"i bought my van in 2011, and it's a 2001. it had 86K on it, everything original. so of course i've had to replace several things but nothing i wouldn't have expected. the parts are fairly inexpensive, and easy to fix."
"I work on cars for a living, so I'm somewhat biased by the things I've seen. However, as vehicles go, other than a problem with the intake manifold gasket, which is not uncommon to the 3.4L, and the eventual TCC (Torque Converter Clutch) problem, which is also, unfortunately, not uncommon to this particular transmission, it has been a very solid and dependable vehicle. Frankly, if they still built vehucles like this, the manufacturers would have gone out of business, as they would sell one, and never another."
"This was my Father-one-Laws Van. There has always been some type of problem with this Van. My Father-in-Law did a lot of fixing him self. Now that he has passed away I am stuck with getting it fixed for my Mother-in-Law. Just put 1200 into it a month and half ago, and now looking to replace the Rack and pinion steering for 950!! Getting really tired of dumping money into this Van. I Have never had good luck with GM products, have had all makes and models!!"
"I have had this van for 6 years now. I got it when my grandma said she didn't want it anymore it had 150,000 on it. 255,000 on it now and it still starts. in the winter of 2013-14 when it was -40 here it started up on the first try. This van has some great driving dynamics a powerful engine that does not disappoint. My fuel mileage is about 29-35 The only thing that I have encountered that I do not like is the drive train. All wheel drive would have been the best thing for this van. Tune ups are time consuming when you do have to change the plugs and wires put 100,000 mile performance plugs on it makes it more efficient."
Cons: "The transmission on a chevy usually doesn't blow"

"This van was great until the transmission blew at 33,000, right after the warranty expired. The comfort is great. The plastic interior parts however are not constructed with any plan for long term, family use."
