2005 Chevrolet VentureReview
I Enjoy My Van And No, I Dont Feel Like I Am A Soccer Mom. — This car gets good gas mileage for a van. It handles well on the roads. I havent had too many major repairs needed to be made, just regular maintenance mainly. The inside is built well for families with kids, which includes a TV that comes in handy for long trips. I like it overall and would recommend this particular model to any family.
Primary Use: Family transportation
Pros: Good size for a medium sized family.
Cons: I had a problem with one of the warning lights that wouldnt turn off. Took the dealer three separate visits to correctly diagnose. Also, the automatic doors will pop open on occasion.
