I have a 2000 Chevy Venture. I brought it used in 1998. Since having it I have no rear window wiper. Heat and A/C work only when placed on high and work very little. Drivers side window keeps falling and we have replaced the regulator on it, and our gas gauge doesn't work. I know of at minimum 5 people that are experiencing these same issues. I am at a loss when almost weekly we have to take door panel off to get window back on track when it rains you wouldn't want to be anywhere near my car because you would have an earfull. Last year in April I also had to replace a head gasket because that blew. Oh and running out of gas is just nuts with all the stuff we have out there in the world GM should know how to build a gas gauge. Not having heat in the winter isn't much fun either. What are you gonna do to make people happy. Well lets start with the gas gauge the other stuff is minor compared to the rest.

The contact owns a 2000 Chevrolet Venture. The contact stated the fuel gauge moved up and down and failed to display the accurate amount of fuel. The contact stated when she added gasoline to the fuel tank the fuel gauge would display empty. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer and was told it was possible that the float used in the fuel tank to read gasoline levels had failed. The failure and current miles were 85,000.

I have had my van for a while I started notice jerking when changing gears, then the gas gauge quit working on the vans in 2005, the dealer told me I needed to purchase a sensor to make the gas gauge work, I was just sending my son off to college I didn't have any money so I drove on, next the belt broke on the car almost causing my son to wreck, ( thank goodness for defensive driving in drives ed.). then the transmission went out, had to pay to have repaired, just got the car back and the service engine soon light came on. Please help I have read the complaints and it seen we are all having the same problem, what is GM waiting on for someone to die are the car to catch a fire this is a manufacture defect come on fix it or give us something to have it repaired at the dealer. This is your business don't you want people to come back.

My 2000 Venture was parked on an incline nose down with a full tank of gas. After about one hour someone smelled gas. We found gas streaming out from under the van. There was no gas in my garage and I did not hit any objects on the way. I had the van towed to the dealer. Must replace entire gas tank because 'check valve inside tank went bad'. cost $1100. This poor design makes us have to replace the entire tank for one valve. Not a maintenance issue. Could have been a very dangerous situation. GM won't help pay for repair.

The dealer told the consumer to put dry gas in the vehicle which solve the problem. The check engine light illuminated, so the dealer tightened the gas cap. The ABS light illuminated.
