"Bought my 2001 Warner Bros. Edition Venture new in Summer 2002. Had brake problems at about 20,000 miles. My mechanic was working on brakes as master cylinder was bad and found that the spindles were broken. After taking to Chevy dealer was told my mechanic must have broken them and it was now not covered under warranty. At about 55,000 miles had to have transmission replaced. Now at 75,00 miles had to have radiator and intake manifold gasket replaced. Van is very versatile with folding and removal individual bucket seats. Kids really enjoy the entertainment system(VCR). Too bad the vehicle was not more dependable."
"With only 81,000 miles on our van, we had to replace the oxygen sensor, fuel tank sensor, air conditioner compressor, thermostat, water pump, and eventually the head gasket. How disappointing!!! How come GM can make a pick-up truck that lasts 200,000 miles, but doesn't put the quality in its smaller vehicles that other manufacturers do? UGH!!!"
"I bought this van new almost 13 years ago. I am retired and only put about 7k on it a year as we have another car. Paint is near perfect, no rust, no engine or transmission problems. Drives and looks brand new. Only problem I have had is Driver's side door regulator [$25 part} which I will put in in a couple days. I have had this van serviced every 3 thousand miles since new . I believe if you take care of a vehicle it will serve you well. I get about 18 mpg in the city and 26-28 on the highway."
