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.

On or around this date my vehicle started to leak fuel from the fuel tank inlet check valve weld.there appears to have been a recall/special coverage # 07203 for this problem dated 8/7/07.I am informed by GM that this expired last year"? I also realize that despite fairly low mileage my vehicle is 11 years old but it is in very good condition and currently registered and has passed safety inspection in MA. My question to you is how can something as dangerous as this have a expiration date?"

About a week after I got my mini van the fuel gauge quit working, the ignition switch started staying on in the start position, and I've got a rattle in the engine that nobody can seem to find. All of my friend's have heard this sound in the engine, but the techs keep telling me it's normal.

The fuel gauge floats all over the place you never know how much gas is in the van, and I can smell gas fumes real strong while sitting still and some times they are strong enough to smell while driving, was reading the recall list from GM on this 2003 Chevy Venture and I don't think my van has been recalled I am going to notify the dealership (mans Chrysler ) and see why they never told me about all the recalls before they sold me the van. This van may need the fuel tank replaced and the steering has this popping sound in the right front side may need to get that checked also according to the recalls I seen on here.
