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 Owner Comments

problem #2

On the way to taking my son to work, I noticed a loud buzzing sound coming from the rear passenger side of my 2002 Chevy Venture van. Upon checking the dashboard for a warning signal, there weren't any warning light's displayed.I just recently had rear brake work done and I'm not sure if that is the problem. Also, I have been noticing a loud pitched whistling sound that starts at about 20 mph and stops at about 45 mph. There is a rattling noise that accompanies the whistling sound when the car is in acceleration.

The windshield leaked water down through the overhead instrument cluster along to the top of the window. The vehicle stalled, hesitated during acceleration and the passenger window had become inoperative. The service tech found corrosion in some wires.
