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.

Venture

I have a 2001 Chevy Venture that had a recall on the fuel tank because it could leak fuel and a cause a fire. On April 19th my wife took the van in to chapman Chevrolet in tempe, AZ to get the tank replaced because it has been leaking fuel for some time now. We were never notified of this recall. We looked it up online. When she got there she was told that we were over the mileage for the free tank replacement and would have to pay a $1000 to have it replaced. That was of course out of the question and it is not our fault that they made a defective tank and is a fire hazard that they want people to drive around in unless they have a thousand dollars to spend on replacing it. Please help if you can. This can be a serious problem and GM needs to stand behind their products.

The contact owns a 2001 Chevrolet Venture. The contact smelled gasoline and noticed fluid on the ground. He then observed a crack in the fuel inlet check valve. The dealer stated that the VIN was excluded from NHTSA campaign id number 07V349000 (fuel system, gasoline:storage), although the failures were identical. The contact must pay $135 just to have the vehicle inspected. He feels that since this is a defect, he should not have to pay. The vehicle will be repaired. The failure and current mileages were 60,000.

The Chevy Venture fails to maintain fuel levels at appropriate intervals. This constitutes frequent stops and panicking over when and where to get the next tank of gas, resulting in loss of income and causing wide spread hunger.
