On or about July of 2005 we noticed our driver brake was putting off the redish dust signaling a need for new brake pads. We bought new pads and my husband went to replace the pads. The pads on the driver side were shot and needed replaced. The pads on the passenger side were brand new! there wasn't any use off them. We purchased the van in Nov of 2004. The van has always had noise when coming to a stop. I had it explained to me, from a service tech at a local chevy dealership, as my brakes are pressed but my van still has the motion behind it to allow the rotor to cont. Turning, till the complete stop. This noise is really noticeable at higher speeds needing to stop. The van at times doesn't feel like it wants to stop. I fear its just a matter of time before it doesn't. We have had several people look at and they all say it looks ok, but don't like the sound it making. I made it a point to have the van in the chevy shop before my 36,000 mile warranty expired. They told me the same thing about the rotor still turning slowly till complete stop. Brakes should stop your car! my old parts I'm not sure if my husband saved them or not. He is currently deployed in iraq. I will check with him. Please consider checking the brake systems on the 2004 Venture vans.

We bought a Chevrolet Venture new on Dec 26,2003. With the last tire rotation I was advised the front brake pads are wearing unevenly and need replacing. I return the vecheal to the dealer to have this problem addressed. I was told that it is normal for the brake pads to wear out that fast. I am concren about the brake pads wearing out that fast. How many other owners of the chevorlet Venture vans are experancing this safety problem to. Clem wertz.

I own a 2001 gray Chevrolet Venture minivan & often times for about the last 5 years now and even at the present time, the accelerator speeds up without any explanation and I have to pump the brakes several times before attempting to turn the car back on again to stop it from continuously accelerating. When the vehicle is off and when I have to pump the brakes, the brake pedal actually pumps up to deactivate the acceleration process temporarily. This happens often during the summer months when air condition is in use and it also happens alot when you are driving and the accelerator will just speed up suddenly for no reason. I have had it inspected by the dealership once about 5 years ago when this first started and they say that it is some kind of braking security feature once they hooked it up to their computer system and said it was nothing to be concerned about but other auto mechanics that have inspected my brakes on the vehicle don't seem to know anymore than the dealership knows because the vehicle is computerized. All the other mechanics do is change my brakes pads when they wear down but can't explain the sudden acceleration now that I am hearing about all of the controversies with Toyota motors braking defaults and the deaths and injuries associated with it I am really getting concerned about my vehicle continuously accelerating for no explainable reason. I think Chevrolet will probably try and hid something because they don't want the bad exposure that Toyota is getting so I really don't want to deal with them right now especially after them telling me basically nothing in the past. Can you please advice me what to do??? [xxx].

Chevy 2000 Venture minivan: grinding braking system almost from day one. The brakes have been making noise almost from the day we brought the van. We have taken it in everytime the brakes make noise and the dealer has cleaned or replaced something everytime. However the griding noise comes back. The front roters and pads were replaced 21,000 miles. The back brakes have been cleaned time and time again. The brake shoes had to be replaced because the calipers failed and had to be replaced. There seems to be an on going brake issue here with the chevy Venture Mini van.
