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 #3

Venture 6-cyl

  • 266,000 miles


Car will speed up on its own and accelerate. The Venture will also over heat after running for 10 min. Or so. This van likes to stall while driving and you must keep your foot on the brake or gas to prevent this from happening while driving. Transmission has been slipping since I got the car. Only owned it less than a year, now it made a loud clanking noise last night and now it will not go in drive only in reverse. You have to shift gears on the steering column only and even then it's debatable if it will run.

When backing out vehicle will jump and then accelerate. Brakes will not stop vehicle. Sometimes vehicle would jump and stop. Also, vehicle is doing the same thing when put itto drive. When stopping and tapping gas pedal lightly vehicle would accelerate forward. Contacted dealer, and dealer stated nothing was wrong with vehicle.
