We used to have a '99 Venture LT, the Uplander's immediate predecessor, and it was a great van. I hear the Uplander is an improvement over the Venture in many ways, so it must be one of the nicest minivans on the road. I know when we were shopping for ours, we found the Venture to be, by far, the best minivan available at the time. Caravan, Sienna, and Windstar couldn't hold a candle to it.
