Great vehicle for family
Pros: Room for everything, everybody and to breath.
Cons: Removable seats are heavy.
Advice: Put it to the test....you won't be disappointed.Just traded in a 2000 Venture LS with 163,000 miles for a new 2004 Extended LT. Most versitile vehicle imaginable. I care for mother and mother-in-law....both can get into and ride comfortably in the Venture even with disabilities. I cater weddings and others events. Will haul everything safely (even the cakes)...even cross country!! Can carry lumber, feed, whatever for my farm. We added a trailer hitch for the small trailer I occassionally pull. Has a better factory stereo than the fancy dancy ones my teenagers have put in their trucks. Even won a friendly little wager with husband's truck...race you to the next stop light. What more can a mom ask for??
