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.

A/C quit working. Took it to the dealership and they said there was a crack in the condencer. On several different occasions the horn has honked while driving down the road. When the van is in drive you let off the brake and it rolls forward and the same in reverse, it rolls.

Venture 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 30,000 miles
Transmission slips after sitting when first starting out;horn honks occasionally while driving; power sliding door on driver's side won't open/close when activated by button or remote switches; hard starts after driving and sitting briefly (especially after highway driving--tried different gas stations gasses). Taken to two different dealers mostly about transmission and they claim unless the check engine light comes on, they can't do anything about it. Going to take back and have it stay there until they reproduce this week.
