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.

Installing child safety seats in the Chevrolet Venture, warner bros edition, bucket seats. You can not safely install child safety seats with this type of seat belt latch. I have contacted the dealer who replaced the latch. It was no better. He even said, he felt it would be unsafe for his own child. I contacted GMC. They called today and said, there was nothing they could do. The irony is, this is a minivan marketed to families with children. It has the video player, cup holders and seat belt "adjusters" so the seat belts fit the kids correctly but you can not add a child car seat! I can guarantee someone will be killed or injured if they do not recall these seats. I told them that today, and they didn't seem to care. I also noticed another complaint regarding this. It should be seriously looked into.

We have had the auto slider door (rt side) fail 3 times. The first time in Nov 2001, the door would not close, so my wife had to drive with the door open to take to the dealer 15 miles away. The mechanism was hanging out the outside track! the second failure occurred Aug 9, 2002 when the door would not open. Took it to the dealer, and picked it up Aug 10 around 10am. The door was opened/closed about 7 times between Aug 10 and morning of Aug 13, when the door failed again and could not be opened! I contacted GM customer service on Aug 9 and again Aug 13th. We have also had ongoing problem with seat belt at seat behind rt side psr seat. We had total failure and the part was on back order for over 2 months! finally, a mechanic said he took part from a lot vehicle and replaced it. About a month ago the belt began working intermittently. We took it in Aug 9 for seat belt as well, and of course, the part is once again on back order. This vehicle has serious safety questions concerning this sliding door and seat belt. Inablility to get in/out of this vehicle when necessary is a great concern and risk to my family.
