CHEVY

1999 Chevrolet Venture

In June 2006, a relative bought me a 1999 chevy venture, with 98,000 miles on it. This realative paid ten grand for the van. After having the van for about 2 months, I have had the following replaced: water pump replaced, radiator, tires, thermostat, rotors rebuilt, brakes replaced. Now, we are unable to turn on the ac because it overheats rapidly and a burning smell of antifreeze. My husband says it might be the heating coil. Here we are like fools, riding around in 100 deegree heat in a van with no ac. I am so disguted. We cannot afford a new vehicle at this time, yet we cannot afford to fix this piece of junk. So far, I have added up my receipts and they totall 4 thousand in repairs & costs.

Sounds like 10,000 in lemons! 4,000 in lemonaide!
Unless you can do the repairs yourself, I would junk the thing.
