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

Oct 132005

I have owned this van for 28 months with multiple mechanical failures. I have had the brakes replaced, the rack and pinion replaced twice, the tie rods on both sides, the power window motor on the passenger side, the glove box lock, the water pump, the thermostat twice, the engine "seals", the coolant hoses and the power door handles. The power sliding door gasket has also come off on multiple occasions. The airbag light has now been on for 4 weeks. I have been stranded many times and without a vehicle on several occasions. The latest problem required three visits to the dealer to fix. The car overheated and could not be driven all three times, in a two week period. This required a new water pump on the first visit, a new thermostat 8 days later and new hoses 1 day after that.
