I bought this van used with about 125,000mi on it. I was very nervous about the mileage, but 2 years later and I am very happy I deciding to buy it! I have NEVER had a major problem with this van. I had to reprogram the automatic sliding doors but that's it. I love its city 19 mpg, and hwy 26 mpg makes for great road trips. For a van that is an excellent mpg. WHY DID CHEVY STOP MAKING THEM???!!!! I would have loved to buy a new one.

I bought a 99 Venture 5 years ago and Im still driving it today!! It has been an exceptional vehicle!! I've done almost NOTHING to it and its still going strong (we're at about 160,000 miles now). I've replaced the brake pads twice, bought a few new tires and the poor thing has only gotten an oil change about once a year and it's still never left me stranded and always starts even when its been -35 for a week straight(I live in Iowa). Oh and I had to replace a taillight fixture thing. I will be sad to see this one go!

Pleasantly Surprised

A great buy for our family of eight. The built-in car seat is a HUGE hit with my wife. More storage space in the back than our previous van. Would have liked double automatic sliding doors, but the non-auto one opens/closes easily. The van seems a little lighter (less crash safe) than the Ford Windstar we owned previously, but it makes up for that in gas mileage & performance. ABS system needs a little work as it makes noise when van hits bumps, but that doesn't dramatically affect braking. With over 110k miles, something is bound to need repair. Overall, we found a nice surprise in this 2005.

It wasn't what I had in mind at the time. The salesperson convinced me to just try it. I've had Chevy and Ford Mini-Vans before, but this is by far a better vehicle. Handles nice, excellent performance, power is exceptional, mileage is excellent. 19-20 in City, 27-28 on the highway. Much better than any vehicle I had before. It's loaded with all the bells and whistles and I love it. My Venture is a 2005 model. Only had 29,000 on it 2 months ago when I bought it.

Solid Performance without Hype

by from Reston, VA on August 17, 2009

Solidly gets 18+ local driving and 24-27mpg highway lightly loaded, and 22 highway under full-load at greater than 70mph, better than the highly rated Honda and Toyota competitors. The LT long-bed provides ample storage capacity, without much difficulty to remove middle and rear seats. Middle and rear seats are adequate for short trips, but a little thinly padded for adults on longer trips. After nearly 5 years, only reliability problem was central electronic module replaced under warranty.
