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 #2

Jul 232014

Venture LX

  • Automatic transmission
  • 96,000 miles


First, this van's transmission "went" after only 33000 miles, and cost $3000 to fix. $3000 over the 30000 warranty. Chevy would do nothing because it was out of warranty. Last year, 2014, the gas gauge would go up then down etc., and it had a miss. I paid $1500 to get the underside of the engine pulled. Got it home and fluid is now leaking and I keep putting oil, antifreeze in it. People are saying junk it, but it has been a great vehicle otherwise. Any advice?

Venture V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,128 miles

I am not sure what is going on, problems with gas tank, engine light comes on, goes off for a couple days then comes back on. Have had gas tank epoxied, it was cracked, have had gas cap replaced. Now the gas gage is acting up as well. I am afraid to take it back in - its costing me too much money. I am going to take it to the dealer.
