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

Apr 142005

Venture 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 128,614 miles


Rear seatbelts fail due to the buckle slipping down exposing the parts inside. These parts come apart when exposed. 2 have failed so far...rendering 2 seats as unusable and unsafe for travel in vehicle. A third seat is in process of failing...buckle has to be kept up with duct tape.

The seatbelts in the passenger seats continuously lock, which requires my children to unfasten them and refasten them several times while driving.
