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 #3

  • miles


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.

Rear deferintial went out than front deferintial went out. I can not find a shop to fix front deferntial because they do not have the tools to take apart. A chevey dealership has made a suggestion that I replace the whole transmission. I have owned this van since Feb. 2006 and I've had to replce the air condishtion motor (about $950) the rear deferintial (about $1400) and now about an other $2000 to put a used front deferintial. The air cond. Motor was new, the rear deferintial was used I could not afford to buy a new one it would have been $3500. I beleive that I am paying for a lemon not a good working van. Please help me find out what I can do to have a recall on this van or if GM should be paying for replaceing these parts.

While driving there was a grinding, clunking noise accompanied by a whistling sound. The dealer replaced the differential. At 4,000 miles the grinding noise returned. The dealer had been contacted.
