Dependable!

by annieOannie from Fond du Lac, WI on Fri Sep 21 2012

I've had my Venture since 2003, when I bought it with 66,000 miles on it. I've put almost 100K on it, and it's still going strong. Can pull a trailer, can pop the seats out easily. A few things have quit: gas gauge stopped working around 145,000..so? I just fill it once a week. Automatic sliding door quit around 125,000; that's ok, too...just use it manually. Both front window mechanisms quit recently(not at the same time)..replaced one, and the other is due, but hey, all in all a great vehicle. Replaced the battery twice over the years, but it can be -30 and the Chevy starts. I just can't justify getting rid of her!

Best American MINIVAN

by Car-Crazy teen from St. Louis MO on Fri Aug 10 2007

This is by far the best American Minivan. Its reliability and features set it apart from Dodge and Ford. The 3.4L V6 responds like big-block V8. The transmission works well with the engine as well. The powertrain works well in any situation, from passing on the highway to keeping a constant speed on hilly back roads. It seats 8 comfortably and holds enough luggage for all 8 on a week-long vacation. The only downsides to this van are the interior and a couple of minor to moderate problems, none of which were very serious.

Reliable Work Horse

by Mom to Pup from on Mon May 03 2010

Traveled cross country twice and had no problems at all. No major repairs needed. This may not be the flashiest car in the world but if you want reliable transportation this is it.

Least dependable car I have ever owned.

by Average Joe. from on Wed Jan 02 2013

I purchased this van. It had more repairs during and after warranty than any vehicle I have ever owned. Finally after owning the vehicle for seven years, major rust spots began to appear and forced me to unload. I will not purchase another Chevrolet as my last two experiences were unreliable and costly.

Mechanical Disaster for GM

by Sean from Fort Wayne, Indaian on Wed Oct 25 2006

Had to replaceTransmission after 55,000 miles (out of warranty) and later had to repair cracked block, head gasket, etc ($1500.00) at 90,000 miles. No wonder GM is getting out of the SUV business...they can't get it right.

Our Take on the 1999 Chevrolet Venture

Like most things in life, choosing between a regular-wheelbase and extended-wheelbase minivan is fraught with tradeoffs.

The shorter, regular-wheelbase model is a bit cheaper, more maneuverable, easier to park and usually more carlike in the corners.

The longer, extended-wheelbase version counters those assorted face cards with an ace in the hole: utility.

The extended-wheelbase Chevrolet Venture I drove recently is a case in point. The extended model's extra 14 inches of length raises its interior volume (with the second and third rows of seats removed) to 155.9 cubic feet, which is a significant 29.3 cubic feet more than you get with the regular model.

Since most minivan owners keep those... Read More
