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.

problem #2

Venture LX V6

  • Automatic transmission

The Venture overheats when ever the engine is warmed up and you have to sit at traffic lights for a long time or you are stuck in traffic for a long period of time. It does help if you turn the heat on because it seems to cool the engine down, but you roast to death doing it.
