2004 Chevrolet Venture Plus 3.4 from North America
A best buy with no need to spend big $$
Brake pads replaced by dealer at NO charge after too much squealing, otherwise nothing yet.
Excellent ride. Basic 'Plus' model offers a/c, power windows, locks, automatic so unless you like lots of extras (that only break) this car has everything you need for very reasonable. The non-power sliding doors are EASY to use so unless elderly or have physical problems, another option that is not important. An excellent minivan with adequate power. The 3.4L 6 cylinder is the only engine option available whether you paid $20K or 35K for the van. Same engine for everybody. The only negative for me is the lack of a tachometer on this model. Why??
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

You could get a tachometer in the 2004 Venture LT model with a certain options package. It really makes for a more useful and visually appealing dash layout. I don't understand why Chevy didn't use that dash for all of the Venture line.
By the way, we love our 2004 Venture LT. We have only had a couple of minor warranty issues with the interior, but nothing serious. My only gripe is the lack of driver legroom with the power seat option.
