1999 Chevrolet Venture LS Extended from North America
Poor quality vehicle that has potential to leave you stranded
Transmission on the Chevrolet Venture is horrible.
Power door lock switches stopped working.
Power window switch stopped working.
Air bag light comes on and stays on.
Low coolant light came on several times even though coolant was not low.
Headlights collect moisture inside.
Simply put this vehicle has been a big super sour lemon.
I thought maybe it was just me who was having transmission problems until I checked up on it on the Internet. Also I work with someone who has the same neck breaking hard shifting that I had on my Venture. My co-worker's is a 2000 model and has less than 75,000 miles on it.
Transmission would act up so bad sometimes it would cause the service engine soon light to come on.
Gas mileage is really low in my opinion. Seemed like we were always putting gas in the thing.
Airbag light would come on at times and stay on. Other times it would go out.
Low coolant light came on several times and when I checked the coolant level was fine.
Good room for hauling a family around, but the problems it had out weighed any good things about this van.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I can't believe the comments I have read about the Venture, what I have read are exactly the same problems I am having on my 2000. I would also add that I have had to replace: all of the hydraulic lifters, the brake power booster, and the power steering unit. At the moment my transmission goes crazy when my speedometer also goes crazy. I only have 65,000 miles on it. I feel like putting a big bow on it and returning it to Chevrolet!
