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.

2005 Chevrolet Venture Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 092007

Venture 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 31,235 miles


I was turning through a left bend on a residential road at approximately 45 mph. Posted speed 40 mph, when the rear axle split at the drivers side hub. This caused me to spin around and crash between a power pole and a tree. My air bags never deployed even with frontal impact and both side door impacted. We walked away with minor whiplash and a few bumps here and there, but the van was totaled with less than 31,000 miles on it and it was well maintained.
