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

Aug 192011

Venture LT EXT V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 134,000 miles


I just learned that I need a new transmission which will cost me $2650! (wish I hadn't of dropped $140 for a transmission service the week before!). The kicker is that I am at the end of my loan (Sept) and thought I'd get to stash some cash for 1 year to save for my next vehicle. I'm really irritated that I have to replace the transmission at 134K miles!! What happened to vehicles being built to "last". I feel as though I'm stuck! If I don't fix the transmission I will be laughed at and get raked over the coals when I sell it. It makes me nervous to buy another Chevy. I really love this van too, I'm just afraid that it will be one thing after another. ARG!!
