I Would Buy Another Venture If Gm Made One (don't Like The Design/styling Of The Uplander). — The Venture has decent acceleration and surprises many at stop lights. I like the gas mileage: usually 18 to 20 around town and 25 to 26 on trips. It hauls a lot and is still well balanced with a full load. Very good winter-time traction. It is heavier than it looks, over 5000 lbs. All seats are comfortable, including the back ones (Chrysler space savers are very uncomfortable). Previously had a Lumina. With the 3.8 engine, it was a bit faster. Loved the plastic body (no dings & no rust). Hated the dash board, very poor design.

It's about as sexy as meatloaf

Required Driving — A necessary evil. I know that a lot of people have problems with these cars, but I have not. It's been reliable and reasonable on gasoline. I have it because it's required driving with several small children. I don't have anything against this car, just not much that is exciting either. I had a Honda Odessey before this, and it wasn't appreciably different -- just a lot more expensive.

Pros

Solid acceleration, great cabin noise from the engine when putting the hammer down

Cons

sluggish cornering, rear passenger leg room very limited

Solid — This car isn't just for soccer moms. It's for the dad who wants to drive with style and performance while taking your family everywhere. This car has gone through a dear at 140km/h, a 2 week trip to florida and back, and has slid off the road... and it still purs like a kitten The engine noise inside the cabin sounds great, and it feels like your driving a high performance SUV, sluggish around corners but is solid off the line (or a traffic light for that matter) This soccer mom minivan isn't for soccer moms anymore, its a freaking Tank!

Why I Like An American Car — My kids love this car, they even have karaoke sessions in it during out of town trips. I "love" to to have it fixed, taking away most of my free-time. Very nice "hobby car". Try recommending to your enemies, if they buy one you're even!
