Pros

Solid family van

Cons

Automatic door is problematic on driver's side.

Solid Van — ease of entry and flexible seating make this a great van for a six person family. I use this to get to work, too. I have to use crutches so the auto driver side door makes a big difference in my mobility.

Pros

This van has been a great family vehicle. We have taken it from FL to NC to Niagara Falls, to St. Louis and back to FL.  We are approaching 190,000 miles with no major repairs.

Cons

What has irritated me about our Venture is that the power door has been lazy, it works when it wants to. Also the wheel speed sensor in the front hubs connector keep giving me problems.

If I Buys Another Minivan, This Will Be The Model I Look For — I have owned a couple of different minivans, a Windstar, Astrovan and this Venture. Only the Venture has not left me sitting on the side of the road waiting for the autoclub to tow it to a garage and take me home.

Pros

I like this car because when I need to load up the family and go a long distance this van has what I need. Space and seating

Cons

I dont like that its a gas hog (kinda)

Bottom Line I Would Recommend This Van To Any Family Looking For A Family Vehicle — Well Appearance.. the looks of this van inside is comfortable feeling for a family man the outside well kinda of sleek with the premium wheels but remember its still a VAN lol.. build quality in the last 102,000 miles I've replaced the alternator(normal) 2 front wheel bearings and the usual stuff like brakes tires oil etc.. Performance well when I want to pass it accelerates well and the brakes are good.. cost of this van is a little high for a mini van but it seats 8 and the auto sliding door is a plus.. gas mileage is about right for what its capable of doing considering engine size..

Pros

This is a GREAT car.  After 6 years still running and looking like new with only routine maintenced and care.  Has a good cargo capacity for my 1/4 scale RC planes.  Handles well and is reliable.  Mileage is much better than advertized.

Cons

Seats are a pain to put in and take out. - Not sure if I would be willing to give up cargo height though for in floor seat storage.

My Chevy Venture Is Great! — This car has been reliable. I got a great deal on it brand new. It looks good. Has no mechnical or body issues. On the highway I get 27mpg or better. City - it depends on who is driving it. Me... 19-21mpg my wife... 16-19mpg. The auto slider door feature is a big help when you have your hands full or it raining...

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Love The Entertainment Package — We have six children, so the 8 passenger works out great along with the DVD we sometimes don't even know they are back there.
