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

Apr 012004

Venture 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 12,955 miles


Venture minivan stalls (dies) while driving. This occurs unexpectedly...occurring 5 different times since we've bought the vehicle. No accidents or injuries as of yet, but we have a child so this is of major concern to us. Mini-van has been to the dealership 3 times...they were unable to duplicate problem. We made a formal complaint to GM headquarters. Most recently dealership replaced ignition switch, stating that problem could..."possibly (be) bad ignition switch." At this point we still do not know if problem is fixed or are we waiting for another stall to occur while driving.
