B+ Overall — Bought this 1999 Venture with 13,000 miles. It was a "program car" so it seemed taken care of. No real issues other than basic maintenance but still having pending DexCool litigation with regard to the seals leaking within the radiator. The automatic door was repaired in early 2000's due to recall on cable. To date, I have several issues I am working on...From research I have water leak causing carpets to be wet on driver and passenger side, the transmission selonoid is beginning to have shifting issues, the wiper fluid pump (if different from the wiper motor) has stopped working, the rear wiper fluid has always worked intermittently, the electrical issues I have with rear vent/AC fan, overhead lights and power door in rear all seem related due to wires being wet under carpet on driver and passenger side. Minor pet peeves are the headlamp lenses being frosty and old, ashtray broke from the track a while back, the driver side door mirror is broke and I had to replace the rear view mirror that finally fell off. I generally haul a pop up camper during the season and it hauls great with the tow package I had installed. Overall, this has been a really reliable vehicle but with 94000 miles on her, its time to get some things tweeked and fixed.

Reliable Big Van With To Be Expected Performance — A big old van. Very spacious. Very good gas mileage for a bigger car. Handles more like a van than our Odyssey. Some buttons are coming off after 10 years, but overall a solid van. Cup holders are an absolute disaster though.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Great Minivan For Us! — Purchased this vehicle new in March 1999. This was our first foray into the minivan market. We were not disappointed! Gas mileage was good, overall performance was good. We sold in in 2006 with just over 75,000 km on it to our friends. They are still driving it and loving it! The only cost it gave us was regular maintenance, tires and a repair to the head gasket which I understand is a problem for all the 6 cyl. 3.4 litre engines that chev used in these vans, the Montana and the Lumina cars. This cost us approximately $1500 to repair but overall this was cheap considering the years of service it gave us.

Pros

Good family vehicle.

Cons

Doesn't last over 100,000 miles.  I hated the cup holders in the back of the seats.  They were worthless.  Gas mileage was not that great.  Good mileage for a van, I guess.

Nice Family Vehicle — I bought this van to haul kids to practice, groceries home and to take family vacations. It did the job very well. When I hit 100,000 miles, things went downhill very quickly. It was good while it lasted.
