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.

2004 Chevrolet Venture Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 142009

Venture LS V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,505 miles


The ABS light came on the dash board. The owner's manual says that it means you have to stop, turn off the engine and re-start because YOU HAVE NO ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Ok I did the process but it stayed on. Took it to the dealership and they say that one sensor is done and the other has shown a history on the computer. So it cost us $500 to replace one sensor, and the light did go off. Two weeks later I hit a puddle of water and the light comes on again! They say to replace all 3 other sensors would cost $1300. They don't know why it's happening and they've never heard of it before. Well I'm going to GM to find out whats what. This is a safety item that we paid EXTRA for and the van only has 33K on it! In service date is Dec 2003, so after 7 years the ABS is toast??
