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 Venture began overheating a month ago. Dealership said it was the radiator. Had that changed out. Still overheated, next the temp gauge, then the thermostat, water pump. Still overheating. It has now spent 2 days at the dealership and again they have tried other options. When they took it for a test drive this afternoon it overheated and they had to have it towed. I began searching the internet and I am finding numerous complaints like mine for the Chevy Venture. Some of the people have been having trouble for 2 years. I have already pulled out $1,300 on this problem! this seems to be a wide spread problem and needs to be addressed. Please help.
