2004 Chevrolet Venture Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Chevrolet Venture
There are too many different little problems that require attention- it doesn't just work and it's not reliable for regular use.
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.
Easy to get in and out with rooms for family
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.
My vehicle overheats when it goes highways speeds.
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.
Very roomy I am able to fit my power chair in back and still have room.
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.
It's a shame Chevy doesn't make a minivan any more.
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.
Very good on gas and mileage is fairly low. Even though its a 2004. We love it.
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.
Issues with the 2004 Chevy 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.
Great on gas and needs some tlc.
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.
I love the automatic door for easy access.
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.
Fabulous and easy to operate powered sliding side doors!
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!
