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.

2002 Chevrolet Venture has a failed air conditioner condenser. The problem was outlined in a service bulletin dated December, 2001, two months after we purchased the vehicle. GM has done nothing to rectify the problem.

We own a 2002 Chevrolet Venture with 80,000 miles and the wheel bearing hubs have been replaced three times. The last time was two months ago and the light is back on again. The last time the dealer changed the hub assembly, they said that they change them all the time. The air conditioning also leaking and does not work. The rear differential has internal broken disks and does not work. We will never buy another Venture again.

The air conditioning went out in Feb. Of 2007. The same old story I have heard from countless people online owning a Chevy Venture. The condenser had a hole in it and the orifice tube needed replacing. When is Chevy going to realize there is a problem.

We bought a Chevy Venture in October, 2004. It was supposed to have been a "GM certified" vehicle, since we bought it in October and in the midwest we did not need to turn the air conditioning unit on until about six months later. That is when we noticed that it was not blowing cold air. According to the dealer the air conditioner condenser had a leak, by then the 3000 miles warranty had expired and we got stuck with the $900 dollars bill. The second incident happened in March 2006, while at the service station for an oil change and state mandated safety inspection the mechanic informed me that the engine cooling system manifold had a leak. I think this vehicle is a lemon but it is to late to do anything about it, this second problem is going to cost me another $900 dollars. Why is it that everything that goes wrong with this van costs $900 dollars?
