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 stated the vehicle had brake problems for all four wheels. The vehicle was taken to the service dealer on 13 occasions. On the 9th visit, the manufacturer authorized a 72,000-mile warranty. On 8/14/2006, while driving 15 mph, the left rear sliding door fell off the roller track.

On or about July of 2005 we noticed our driver brake was putting off the redish dust signaling a need for new brake pads. We bought new pads and my husband went to replace the pads. The pads on the driver side were shot and needed replaced. The pads on the passenger side were brand new! there wasn't any use off them. We purchased the van in Nov of 2004. The van has always had noise when coming to a stop. I had it explained to me, from a service tech at a local Chevy dealership, as my brakes are pressed but my van still has the motion behind it to allow the rotor to cont. Turning, till the complete stop. This noise is really noticeable at higher speeds needing to stop. The van at times doesn't feel like it wants to stop. I fear its just a matter of time before it doesn't. we have had several people look at and they all say it looks ok, but don't like the sound it making. I made it a point to have the van in the Chevy shop before my 36,000 mile warranty expired. They told me the same thing about the rotor still turning slowly till complete stop. Brakes should stop your car! my old parts I'm not sure if my husband saved them or not. He is currently deployed in iraq. I will check with him. Please consider checking the brake systems on the 2004 Venture vans.

I have a 2004 (bought new) Chevy van. We stopped on day and the back wheel was smoking. We called the dealer and took it in to be checked and they told us that the back brakes have never been attached. We were running only on front brakes. We just came back from a trip and to think we could have been killed. I was furious that such a thing could happen. They did attach the back brakes and I feel that since we were running on only front brakes, that the front brakes should be replaced by them.
