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.

The contact owns a 2004 Chevrolet Venture. The contact stated that the rocker panels were rusted. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic, who diagnosed that the integral body structure was weakened by rust and formed holes. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 94,000.

The electric passenger door on my 2004 Chevrolet Venture has repeatedly closed with various children's body parts in its path. This closing has occurred when one child is getting into or out of the van and that child or another child has accidentally pushed the button to close the door, or when I have remotely pushed the button to close the door and one of the children has reached back in for something. The door does not stop, and crushes whatever is in it's path. Fortunately I have been quick enough to avoid any serious injuries, but my children have been pretty bruised up and my seven-year-old daughter was cut by the door.
