2000 Chevrolet Venture Owner Comments

problem #5

Jan 082004


  • Automatic transmission
  • 39,500 miles


While driving approximately 30 mph, the vehicle stalled. The dealer replaced the delco battery. The technician indicated that the intake manifold gasket broke and needed to be replaced. Before the battery was replaced the vehicle was jump started by aaa, however the battery failed again, aaa had to be called again and upon inspection it was found the positive post had separated from the battery.

2000 Chevrolet Venture: I bought the vehicle new Jan 01, on around 4 June 2003 I noticed the car would not start. I checked the battery cables, and when I grabbed the positive cable, it broke off from the battery terminal. Acid had apparently been leaking from the terminal and eventually corroded the battery post/terminal. This caused premature failure and I had to go buy a replacement battery. I did not report it to Chevrolet dealer because original 36,000 mile warranty had expired. My co-worker has a 1998 Chevrolet Venture and he just informed me that his ac/delco battery had the same exact problem and he just replaced his on 31 Aug 2003.

I have owed the vehicle for 53 days and have to have it towed 4 times and replace fuel pump twice, the battery once. Luckily the pump conked out while parked, and not at an intersection. My wife is pregnant with our third child, and the van has stranded her 4 times. I had the dealership run a check on the past repair history of the van and hey! the pump was replaced (by the previous owner) on 7/6/01 and again on 8/04/01. With the addition of my two pumps, that brings the total to 4, obviously. The van has 38000 miles and four fuel pumps, I think that speaks for itself. I have written a letter to Chevrolet, of course don't expect a favorable response. Another factor of complete irritation is the placement of the battery. It is nearly impossible for an average joe like myself to access the battery to replace it. I had to pay $200 for parts and labor for a battery, which I could replace myself if the thing wasn't designed (seemingly) to prevent owner maintenance. I would definitely not recommend this vehicle to anyone. When it runs it's nice, but unless you want to run the risk of having it towed once every 13 days and paying $520 in repairs and tows while only owing the car for less than two months, purchase something else.

I purchased my van on 12/26/2000 and drove it home. I had trouble starting the next day, but finally started and I used it. I parked overnight and could not start it on 12/28. It was towed in by dealer on 12/29 and released to me the next day claiming loose battery connection as cause of problem. I used it half day on 12/30 and parked overnight. Again it would not start on 12/31. Dealer took it in today today and van is still with dealer as at this time my mail. I was told the van is in perfect running condition. But now I am not so sure of what to think. I am frustrated and worried about the safety of my family using this van. What am I doing or not doing that could be causing this problem? thank you for giving me the chance to report my problem.
