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

Venture 6-cyl

Without warning, my 2002 Chevy Venture van's A/C stopped working -- a.C. specialist determined that not only did the compressor stop working, it somehow had exploded and sent freon and metal shards causing additional damage and highter costs -- this was in June a couple of weeks before vacation - what could we do but pay the almost $2,000 costs (a lot of labor!). an A/C compressor going when it's only 4 years old? what a defective part! soon after this incident, the fuel gauge stopped working - can't afford another pricey repair, so we've been tracking mileage with the trip odometer to tell us when it's time to refill. This car doesn't hold a candle to my old 1990 lumina van that last to over 200,000 miles! very disappointed with chev -- don't know if I'll ever buy american again!!!
