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.

2003 Chevrolet Venture Owner Comments

problem #3

Venture 4WD

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,363 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

My 2003 Chevy Venture lt van (41,000 mi on it) stopped at the bottom of my driveway and would not go forward. My son-in-law, ( a mechanic) checked the left back brake and found a large heavy duty spring and broken in half that held the brake shoe together. I do not know if this is a defect but it could have been dangerous if I had been on the highway and the left back wheel had frozen up on me. My son-in-law purchased a new spring from a parts dealer as the Chevy dealer (did not have any in stock?). he has repaired it.

Venture 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 739 miles
2003 Chevrolet van purchased new 6/23/2003 from randy marion Chevrolet-Pontiac-Buick, Inc., mooresville, nc 28115. Problem: Squealing brakes. I have had this van into the dealership on five separate occassions in the past five months to have the brakes repaired. The dealership keeps my van from 2 to 4 days to 'make certain the problem has been corrected'. the brakes have not been correctly repaired. Various service tickets state, "clean, adjust, applied anti-seize on rear backing bplates; beveled edge of brake shoes, and readjuste: Clean and adjusted rear shoes and applied anti-squeal'. the brakes continue to squeal each time I press my foot to the brake. I am greatly concerned for my families safety. I am distressed that this dealership (randy marion) will not contact GM to ask for technical assistance to correctly resolve the brake problem as I have requested the dealership to do so on more than one occassion.
