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.

This vehicle had a poor transmission as soon as I purchased it at approximately 82,000 miles. It seemed to keep missing in between change of gears.

My 2001 Olds minivan's transmission is going out. What is so ironic is this is the very same vehicle as a Chevy Venture. My '97 (first year model) Venture's transmission went out at approx. 85,000 miles. I think these vans need to be checked into. Are they not putting a heavy enough transmission in these vans? They are heavy vehicles. I know this will be the last one I purchase, I think I will go Toyota or Nissan from now on!
