Adjusting to a larger vehicle: made easy.

2004 Chevrolet Venture Base

I despised having to consider driving a van. I have always said I will not be that mom, but when I got the news I was pregnant with twins I knew the time was near. I bought a 2004 Chevy venture. Immediately, my two oldest kids loved it. Of course for me it took some adjusting, I was use to driving a smaller car. The adjustment didn't take long. It rides very smooth, get pretty decent mileage. The gas gauge did give out so I have to track my miles. It hold a 16 gallon gas tank, and I get just over 300 miles per tank.

There are too many different little problems that require attention- it doesn't just work and it's not reliable for regular use.

2004 Chevrolet Venture

My van has several small "bugs" that I have dealt with since I bought it. The headlights and tail lights frequently need to be changed. It takes a minimum of 3 tries to start every time. The engine is placed in such a way that "simple" repairs, like replacing a spark plug on cylinder 1 require that the entire engine be unmounted and shifted to gain enough room to reach that one cylinder head. I bought it used, but the quirks and kinks that I go through to keep it running make me wish I hadn't bought it at all.

This car has a lot of space to haul almost anything. This feature is great

2004 Chevrolet Venture Base

With my Chevrolet Venture, I would say that it is very practical. With the purchase of almost any car, it feels so depreciated, as soon as it is bought. There are some blind-spots that could be more visible. There could be more power, sometimes feels depleted, low. There is a lot of room, space, but the space seems unbalanced at times. And finally, the gas mileage is ok, at best. Would love to see more gas mileage.

Easy to get in and out with rooms for family

2004 Chevrolet Venture

My husband and I love this car because it is easy to get in and out. We have plenty enough room over head and around. Also one of our kids can fit in the seat with one built in booster seat which can be folded up, so it is an extra. It is a good van for a small family to go here and there. We have gone for family trips cross country many with this van and have no problem.

Electrical nightmare, falling apart

2004 Chevrolet Venture LT

If it was in good condition when I bought it I would love it but I bought it used as it has been nothing but problems. I have replaced the whole front end and the issues worse than before. The car parts have to be ordered because no one carries them and there is an electrical problem the windows don't go down the ac doesn't work the heat controls don't work

- Tara D

The interesting thing about my vehicle is that it is still running.

2004 Chevrolet Venture

My van has been amazing I bought it back in 2015 and so far it has been a great running vehicle I have had it for five years and only had one issue so far however I do hope to upgrade in the future. So far it is still really good on gas and fits my entire family but I wish it had more features and I wish I had a better working radio.

- Kimberly Y

Venture? More like adventure

2004 Chevrolet Venture Plus

I love the van itself, it's just a bit outdated now and has wear on the brakes, wheel bearing, and window switches. Very reliable if you take care of it, though. The interior holds up very well, and all features seem to last a decent amount of time considering the fact that it is a fifteen year old vehicle at this point.

- Olivia R

My vehicle overheats when it goes highways speeds.

2004 Chevrolet Venture

I currently own a Chevy Venture. I would not recommend this vehicle because I have experienced great trouble with it overheating. After thorough research, a mechanic gave me bad news that my head gasket was leaking. The entire dashboard relay is has a complete wiring problem as well. None of the gauges work.

- Rachel R

2004 Chevy Venture - reliable and not too ugly.

2004 Chevrolet Venture Base

It is a good and reliable van. Automatic sliding doors. Lots of room in all seats, and tons of room in the trunk. We have recently had issues with the power steering but outside of that it has been very reliable. Obviously it is an older vehicle with a good amount of miles but the engine still runs strong.

- David C

A interesting detail is how the seats can go down.

2004 Chevrolet Venture Plus

I never had any sort of problem with my car. It's in good shape. Like how it has a built in car seat. Another thing I like is that it can fit up to 8 people. It holds up to its promise and has good mileage. Looks amazing on both inside and outside. The seats are really comfy and can lay back like a bed.

- Billy J

Very reliable and very comfortable to drive

2004 Chevrolet Venture LS

This has probably been one of the best vehicles I've ever had. It has been very low maintenance. It has gotten my family from Arizona to Ohio safely and hasn't required much more than general maintenance. The only wish I had would be that it's not getting the best mileage per gallon of gasoline

- Michael M

Practical and cost efficient

2004 Chevrolet Venture LS

Overall we really like the Chevy Venture. The shocks don't seems to last as long as we would like and the electric door doesn't always work but other than that we really like our Chevy Venture. It is practical and has easy access to the rear seats. Would definitely consider buying one again.

- Mary Lou M

Very roomy I am able to fit my power chair in back and still have room.

2004 Chevrolet Venture

Power windows poor locks plenty if room for cargo up until 2 yrs ago very reliable replaced transmission 2 yrs ago rusting really bad underneath good gas mileage smooth comfy routine maintenance had 160000 miles on it engine good power doors no longer work and sliding door gets stuck.

- Lydia R

It's a shame Chevy doesn't make a minivan any more.

2004 Chevrolet Venture

It is very roomy, and a comfortable ride. The power sliding doors often malfunction, so I quit having them repaired, and just operate them manually. I will not ever get the power sliding door option again. All other maintenance has been minimal. The car is generally very reliable.

- Matt C

Very good on gas and mileage is fairly low. Even though its a 2004. We love it.

2004 Chevrolet Venture

It is old but good. We've kept up on all maintenance. That is very important. When purchasing any vehicle always check it over, check mileage, etc.. It is very important. Always choose what you can afford as far as payments. Get something that is suitable for you or your family.

- Shannon N

Issues with the 2004 Chevy venture.

2004 Chevrolet Venture

Electric window and door locks switch keeps going out. Have to replace about once a year. No rhyme or reason the switches keep going out. Also.. There is a leak from somewhere the front passenger floorboard keeps getting wet. Believed to be the air conditioning until.

- Jane S

Great on gas and needs some tlc.

2004 Chevrolet Venture

The breaks are a bit touchy. It does drive smoothly and it is great on gas. It needs tires and an oil change. It has rust along the bottom. I would still buy another one in a different color and a newer year. My van would be perfect once all the maintenance is done.

- Vanessa L

I love the automatic door for easy access.

2004 Chevrolet Venture

No problems just need a bigger vehicle. I drive for uber so I need something with more storage room and seating for at least 8 people. I am a mother of a child with special needs and need to earn an income to pay for his therapy. All in all this car has been great.

- Susan S

Fabulous and easy to operate powered sliding side doors!

2004 Chevrolet Venture

The Chevrolet venture offers a very comfortable ride for drivers and passengers! It is always been a dependable van and good on gas! I love the automatic sliding doors! And it has a great panoramic windows which makes it easy to see other vehicles around you!

- Michelle H

Some things out of battery.

2004 Chevrolet Venture

The van has a hundred and seventy thousand miles on it and it is incredibly reliable I drove from Florida to Arizona with the whole back completely full of property and didn't have one single problem. The only thing that had to be changed was the battery.

- Matt K

Don't get a flat. The spare is a temp and it's probably rusted under the car.

2004 Chevrolet Venture

It takes me every place I want to go. I only have to fill it up once a month. With a lift on the back I can take my husband and his wheelchair everywhere. It's a 2004 so it is starting to have a whole lot of problems.

- Nancy S

The biggest problem with the van is the fuel gage f2 doesn't work so we have to be careful not to run out.

2004 Chevrolet Venture

This is just an average vehicle used as a daily driver for the household. The van is comfortable and relatively safe and dependable.It gets about 20 mpg on open road and about 15 mpg in town.

- Jimmy E

Dependable vehicle, that can go on long or short rides.

2004 Chevrolet Venture

I like my vehicle it has a smooth ride, feels like a cadillac, great air, Very warm in winter, and cold on summer, comfortable seating, 4 captain chairs that make you feel like a king.

- Brandon L

The seats can be removed or lowered to make more room. You can remove one seat or all of them, lower one of them or all of them. It is very versatile.

2004 Chevrolet Venture

It has a lot of room and the seats can be removed to make extra room for big items. I feel safe in the van. It has lasted a long time. It is a good vehicle. There is nothing that I dislike

- june K

It's a good van for a work. Not to much for families.

2004 Chevrolet Venture

Its old a lot of things are breaking or falling apart. It is also too small I need a large transport/transit van that can hold 12 people. I would also enjoy a van that was newer.

- Jessica J

Great family car, would definitely recommend especially for those with large families seats eight people.

2004 Chevrolet Venture

Love the size, makes it easier to travel. Has a few unusual quirks that are troublesome, but the mechanic can never find anything wrong. Gets really good mileage for a venture.

- Rebecca S

It's functional and roomy but far from perfect in many ways.

2004 Chevrolet Venture

The cruise control is broken, it has bad bearings, and the a/c isn't strong. But it runs and the a/c does work. And there's room for everyone and shopping.

- Amanda F

It's a good vehicle for a long time

2004 Chevrolet Venture

It has enough room for my family. It doesn't break down very often and when it does it's usually an easy fix. It doesn't have enough storage space.

- Serena H

This is a great, long-lasting van! It has been very dependable and a great family vehicle.

2004 Chevrolet Venture

We bought our van new in January 2005. It has been super reliable and has not needed very much major work on it the whole time we've owned it.

- Rhonda H

Don't buy one this age, it will rust away on you.

2004 Chevrolet Venture

It rides very well but it rusted out fast. I don't normally buy Chevys but I thought this was a good deal. My mistake, it has been a money pit!

- Karl m

The most important thing anyone should know about my vehicle is that the thermostat went out after owning it for 4 years

2004 Chevrolet Venture

I own a 2004 chevy venture. It is the first mini van i have ever owned, and i would highly recommend it to anyone looking to purchase a van.

Reliable roomy and first 10 years no major repairs started rusting early on

2004 Chevrolet Venture

Runs good average gas mileage roomy until certainly no major repairs had to replace transmission and electric doors is rusting on bottom

- Lidija R

Can have electrical issues if not properly maintained.

2004 Chevrolet Venture

I love the size of the vehicle and how it drives. I wish both doors were automatic, that the windows rolled down versus popping out.

- Cassandra A

I do not know of any thing specific.

2004 Chevrolet Venture

I like all the space, I can haul lots of stuff, I can also carry the biggest share of my family, I dislike the gas mileage,.

- Leann R

The Venture Van Adventures!

- Nathan S

The back seats can fold down for more storage

2004 Chevrolet Venture

It seats 8, and can store a lot. However, it is getting old and some parts are wearing out.

- Alexander R

3 rows, fits 8 people, the rows fold down so you can fit bigger items in the back.

2004 Chevrolet Venture

It fits 8 people in the 3 rows. I have had to spend more money on fixing it then it's worth.

- Tara R

It runs great and is good on gas.

2004 Chevrolet Venture

My van starts every time I need to start it and gets good gas mileage for an older van.

Nothing is important about my car that anyone else needs to know about other than it is still roadworthy.

No complaints other than the vehicle is getting old.
