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

Venture 6-cyl

  • 83,000 miles


Suspension--both tie rods in the front of the vehicle have had to be replaced--mechanic said that both times it was near catastrophic failure. Other--air conditioner condenser cracked due to design failure. 2002 service bulletin told that GM was aware of the problem but kept quiet until the warranty period was over, and then refused to help. Brakes--front brake pads have been replaced four (4) times, rotors have been replaced twice. The vehicle has 83,000 original miles. I am the original owner.
