So, I recently bought a 2004 Venture. It's an El Dorado disability conversion and is fairly plain jane with the basic options such as A/C (front and rear), power windows / locks and cruise control. It's only got 53,400 miles (bought in October with 51,800 on it). It has the 3.4 litre with the THM 4T65E Transmission.

I've done a few things to such as front brakes, replaced the lines to the rear air ride, replaced the transmission / engine mounts and flushed the old coolant out and refilled with new Dex Cool.

It runs great so far, I will say I love the mixed (mountain and some highway) fuel economy of 17 MPG.

We have an '04 Venture. She's rusty and worn out now, but has been a great and faithful family servant. Several long road trips...Disney, Route 66, etc. I know FWDs are popular with lots of folks, but I just love the van.
