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.

problem #1

Venture 6-cyl

  • 79,000 miles


The contact owns a 2004 Chevrolet Venture. The contact stated that while entering the vehicle, there was a strong gasoline fuel smell being emitted from the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to a private mechanic where it was confirmed that the fuel tank failed. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was contacted about the issue and informed the contact that the vehicle was not included in NHTSA campaign id number 07E021000 (fuel system, other:storage:tank assembly:pressure relief devices). The failure mileage was 79,000 and the current mileage was unavailable. Updated 12/11/12 the consumer stated the fuel tank intake seal failed. This caused gas to no longer be safely contained and toxic fumes are being released. Updated 12/17/2012
