2003 Chevrolet Venture Owner Comments

problem #3

Strong smell of antifreeze and was loosing coolant. Overheating. Spoke with GM several times and complained. This cost me $1000 to repair and after reading complaints of owners with the same problem, the problem recurred after repairing. Also, signal light bulbs kept blowing and an electrical board had to be replaced.

I have owned this van for 28 months with multiple mechanical failures. I have had the brakes replaced, the rack and pinion replaced twice, the tie rods on both sides, the power window motor on the passenger side, the glove box lock, the water pump, the thermostat twice, the engine "seals", the coolant hoses and the power door handles. The power sliding door gasket has also come off on multiple occasions. The airbag light has now been on for 4 weeks. I have been stranded many times and without a vehicle on several occasions. The latest problem required three visits to the dealer to fix. The car overheated and could not be driven all three times, in a two week period. This required a new water pump on the first visit, a new thermostat 8 days later and new hoses 1 day after that.
