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.

While driving on the highway, the clip which held the spare tire underneath the van broke and the spare tire fell off onto the road.

Since purchasing this van I have had numerous problems, with the most recent being an engine replacement. This problem stems from the bad design of GM's intake gasket which breaks down and causes anti-freeze to leak into the engine causing premature wear and/or replacement.

When sitting still and turning the steering wheel, there is a low frequency loud groaning noise. It sounds like it is coming from the steering mechanisms outside of the passenger compartment.

I am surprised no tsb exists for this problem that I can find. My 1998 Chevrolet Venture van had a problem with the headlight - the lens on the headlight housing fell off! discussing the issue with a number of automotive professionals, I learned this is apparently a common occurrence. Now if the lens falls off, the headlight bulb is exposed and can easily be damaged and not function - is this not a safety concern" should not this issue be addressed as a possible threat to safety in the operation of a motor vehicle" thank you.
