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

Jul 072011

Venture V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 69,161 miles


took van to dealer because check engine light was on. scan test codes found a PO445 -checked for emissions large leak preformed inspection nothing found-come back if light turns on again-light never went off- then the transmission went-question if a test was preformed why didn't a code come up for a problem with the transmission? I just paid this beast off and it has under 100,000 miles on it and I want to get rid of it. I really don't want another chevy...that is all I have bought... the last good one I had was a cav 1997 and it's still on the road. I have had a malibu and a impala and nothing but electrical unhappy I love chevys since my first 1970 disappointed. I just want to know where to go and what to buy next. The days of the mom soccer van are over ... I still drive a lot and need a car that is comfortable and good on gas.
