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 #2

Jan 152006

Venture 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 35,000 miles


Water in headlights. Taken back to dealership once already. Water accumulated again. Tail lights were stuck. Only one turn signal would blink, which would cause everything on the dashboard to blink and the radio reading to blink. - diagnosis was the hazard light switch on top of the steering column. Replaced. Upon purchase and driving - a slight hesitation was noticed when accelerating. The dealership said it was the way Chevy' change gears. The hesitation is getting worse (possible transmission problems)

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
The contact owns a 2005 Chevy Venture with 7 passenger seating. The contact stated that the air conditioning was not working. The fuel gauge worked erratically.. one minute it will show full and the next empty. Also havedproblems with the temperature gauge, they corrected that problem. The dash cluster, A/C pumps, and the A/C valve has been replaced and still not corrected the problems. You can be driving down the road the A/C will be cooling and then all of a sudden it will blow out hot air. Brakes were making a squealing noise. The van only has less than 10,000 miles. The dealership has been doing everything that the service representative iwas telling him to do. The service managerfrom GM told the service manager at the dealership to replace the throttle body to fix the A/C and that has nothing to do with the air conditioner. Also, there was another van with more miles than his that had same problems. The contact has been having problems with his van every since date of purchase which was April 29, 2005.
