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.

2001 Chevrolet Venture Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 122007

Venture 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 96,000 miles


The contact owns a 2001 Chevrolet Venture. The contact stated that the brake pedal extended to the floor when depressed. The vehicle was taken to a brake shop (all tune and lube) and they replaced the brake pads, cylinder, and rotors. The contact also stated that the temperature gauge would move to hot. The contact had the vehicle inspected and was informed that the manifold gasket needed to be replaced. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic and the repair was performed. The transmission was also slipping gears. The contact had the transmission fluid flushed, but that did not correct the failure. The current and failure mileages were 96,000.
