Chevrolet Owners' Reviews
I keep having to replace rear axel seals, this will be the third time. Should I go to GM to buy the part???
2005 Chevy Colorado heater core already bad.
Love my Tahoe! Only issue I have had was with the manufacturer wanting me to replace the camshaft out of pocket (defect!) three times!!! Second time was around 112,000 and they were not going to fix it because the warranty had expired, BUT because I had the almost same exact problem @ 98,000, they agreed it was a problem. Fixed, so I thought. I was told that the motor was being rebuilt. What a lie!!! At 126,000, the same thing happened again. Was not a happy camper. This time the manufacturer wanted me to foot the bill and purchase a new engine. Right!! Inherent problem and I have to pay for it? I did have to pay a deductible, but now that I'm at 129,000, I'm back to smooth sailing. Really happy that my engine get its first tune up and it was still a smooth ride before that.
Oh, I'm fanatical on making sure routine maintenance is done. Belts have been replace, brakes have been services, tranny serviced every 50,000 miles, and tune up done.
Wow. I have read the reviews of other Venture owners, nasty. I must have got the odd duck. I have 246,858 miles on mine. Bought it new with 3 miles on it. Other then general maintenance, I had to replace the rear light circuit boards (common problem) and have the transmission rebuilt at 186000 miles. Other then that its been brakes and belts/hoses and oil changes. The 3400 V6 still gets 27 mpg/highway 16 city, which is about the same or more then most new vans get. No payments to make and parts are common to find as they used that engine and transmission in several GM products. As long as it runs I will keep it. Sorry the others are having such a bad time with their Ventures.
The Volt is the best car I've ever owned both from a performance (fun to drive) and from a quality perspective. The immediate torque from an electric car makes for a really enjoyable experience and the Volt is so well balanced that you can drive it like a sports car. EVs tend to be ugly, but the Volt is actually quite attractive. Sure, I'd take a Tesla in an instant, but short of that, I wouldn't trade my Volt for anything. I've owned it for over 2 years now and can count the number of times I've been to a gas station on one hand. I highly recommend it.
