Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

1998 Chevrolet Venture Owner Comments

problem #3

I reported a defect last week on my integral child safety seat - the latch which goes across the child's chest pops open when pulled on - since then I have been told by bob tagg the service manager for lawrence hall Chevrolet that the safety restraints on the new Chevy Venture vans do the same thing - and therefore they will not replace mine. I was horrified to find that there are thousands of children on the road whose parents (like I was) thinking that their child is safely strapped in and they are far from it. I implore you to please check into this defect for the welfare of these children.
