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.

GM should step up to the plate - this is total BS! After the lack of support we got, we'll be buying Japaneses from now on...

  • Automatic transmission
  • 62,000 miles

1998 Chevy Venture needed complete intake gasket job at 62000 miles costing 1200, reason being, cheap gaskets, plus this is a known GM problem. GM is being sued in Canada, but nothing in the US. Disgraceful. Now, the head gasket is blown, with an estimated $2000 repair job. This is a known defect in this car.
