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 #1

ABS brake failure with AWD disable. ABS light came on with AWD disable message, both are connected. With ABS failure, AWD is disables. Failure required replacement of part. No consequences because it was summer and no snow, winter would have been different story. Only part that failed was replaced but there is a service bulletin and re-engineered part due to obvious problems. Bulletin is #03-05-25-004A. Concern is that ABS and AWD fail at same time, I feel this is a serious safety hazard in winter driving, the type you buy a AWD for. I have contacted GM and the refuse to replace other part.
