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.

I bought this car used and discovered that I couldn't fill the gas tank more than 1/3 of the way or it would leak from a crack in the plastic gas tank where the filler pipe connects to the tank. I looked it up on the internet and discovered it was a common problem; www.aboutautomobile.com/complaint/2003/Chevrolet/Venture/fuel+tank I talked to my local Chevrolet dealer and he said that there was a recall, but my VIN number was not included. Now what?

I noticed fuel mileage being really off and a very strong gasoline smell and had it checked @ our local repair shop and was told gas tank weld had failed; we were also told we were very lucky that we got it in as soon as we did. Very dangerous! was also told by mechanic that there had been recalls on this very thing and also even more service bulletins. I contacted GM and was told yes there had been recalls but not our VIN number group! now it's time to do this before someone dies or is maimed. They told me they were very sorry but glad no one was hurt! I was also told to save all my paper work just in case @ which time I told them I save everything! they were more concerned about why I had taken it to our repair shop rather than one of their dealers; I told them that the only thing I ever got from their dealers were that they could not ever replicate the problem; then our repairman would fix what they couldn't even identify.

The gas gauge stopped working, went from full to empty in about 3 seconds. Chevy refused to help. I have carried a notebook in the vehicle since that time, writing down the date, place of purchase, mileage, total cost, cost per gallon, and how many gallons. This is to make sure I don't run dry, since the idiot going goes off whenever it pleases. (car was purchased new, from paramus Chevrolet in October, 2001).

The fuel gauge either shows full or empty. It will show full while driving, but when sitting still, even if you just filled up the low fuel light will come on and the gauge will drop to empty. Other than setting the trip, you have no way of knowing how much gas is in the tank. When you get to half a tank or so, the light will come on constantly and ding. Have tried many things to fix this problem but nothing seems to work. I have heard this on a lot of this same type vehicle.
