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

On 08/13/2010 our 2003 Venture minivan suddenly began smelling of fuel. Upon inspection I noticed fuel streaming from the fuel tank where the filler neck joins the body of the tank. At first I thought the filler hose was loose so I tried to twist it to check the tightness, at this point the neck separated from the tank entirely! about 15 gallons of fuel were spilled and fire rescue were dispatched. This seems to be a problem that is very common with this tank, I have only been looking for a replacement one day and have encountered several tanks with this problem. Some have been repaired with an epoxy but I have been warned this is a "trade it quick" remedy.
