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 #1

Feb 082006

Venture 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 44,800 miles


For nearly 6 months my minivan engine would shut-off while I was idling while parked, waiting to pickup and Transport children to next stop. Once it cut off while I was driving on a city road. Luckily, I was able turn the wheel enough to coast onto a side street. Curiously, when various tow operators came to tow the van directly to dealer, they too were not able to restart the engine--there is no noise, no crank. By the time the mechanics got to the van in the morning, they reported that they could not duplicate the problem. The final time and approximately 4th time I experienced engine cut-off, I had my husband pickup the children and I. we ate dinner, then later returned to the van. It started just fine and I drove it home. The next day I drove it to the dealer and was insistent that the dealer find and fix the problem. Dealer replaced fuel pump and filter. Because of history of the complaint, I paid for parts but not labor, $470. I also paid for a routine fuel injection cleaning, $150. The problem has not recurred.
