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 #2

Jan 102004

Venture 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 23,000 miles


I have been stopped & warned by others constantly since I have owned the vehicle about having no brake lights, except for the third brake light, above the rear glass. I replaced two bulbs 3057 in the tail eights at least every 3 weeks. The bulbs looked fine. I have to remove, sometimes replace, sometimes just reset the bulbs. Been to the dealership countless times, to no avail! very frustrating & dangerous. Will cause cruise control to fail - generally the first warning I have to alert me of the tail light failure. Just waiting to be rear ended!

- the contact owns a 2004 Chevrolet Venture with 65000 miles. The contact stated that the circuit board was bad on both sides of the vehicle, which caused the brake lights to fail. The contact replaced the brake lights four times, and has had four different mechanics checking at the vehicle, and they advised the contact of the same problem.
