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.

Venture 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
On Friday, November 12 2004, I entered the middle row of my son-in-law?S new 2005 Chevrolet Venture. This vehicle is equipped with an automatic sliding rear side door. After I sat down and closed the door, it seemed to not close completely. I proceeded to open and close the door again. As the door started to open, I tried closing it with the door handle. However, it continued to open fully. By the time I realized that the door was not going to stop, despite my closing pressure on the door handle, my arm had moved backwards and became lodged against the back of my seat. I was unable to release my hand from the door handle, and as the door opened further, it fractured both bones in my arm.
