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 #2

  • Automatic transmission

The light saying "check engine soon" went on. I was due for an oil change anyway so took the car to the dealer. Parts manager said it needs a new thermostat and intake gasket. Gasket takes 6.6 hrs labor and will therefore cost over $500. This is a 2002 Chevrolet Venture van model sv; 42000 miles. This seems an unusual costly repair for this vehicle. What do you think?

Venture 6-cyl

While driving our 2002 Chevrolet Venture, the ABS light comes on and "all-wheel drive disabled" appears in the display. This has occurred on three separate occasions, each time while driving, each time after having been repaired by the dealer. In for service on 9/5/02, 11/19/02, 12/2/02 and today, 9/29/03 for a total of 47 days and counting. This last incident occurred after the part was "redesigned" to eliminate the known defect. There was a failure of the ABS and all wheel drive system due to a faulty wheel speed sensor. The consumer requested a refund under the New York lemon law. The fuel evaporator leaked.
