I am trying to find service bulletins for my Chevrolet Venture
(2000) which is falling apart. Can anyone point me to a site with
these? Couldn't find one after searching for it for 60 minutes (I
am not the best with the internet...).
As well, I read somewhere that there is a secret warranty
concerning Venture's roof rusting away (yep, mine is as well).
Where can I find some "official" information about this?
If you need to know why I will never buy another GM van, please
see a truncated list of some of the problems I had had since
buying new 2000, The car as only 90,000 KM or 50,000 Miles.
1- The ABS light is always on: 2 Chevrolet dealers and one ABS
specialist have not idea why. It cost me, so far, 500$ in
diagnostics alone, to no avail.
2- Passenger side power window works intermittently
3- Driver side windows gets stuck halfway up. Needs help to
4- Rust: well pretty much everywhere! Yet it was well maintained:
washed every week, under carriage, waxed every 2 months, no
chips, the rust is from the inside out, etc...
5- Head gasket leak (they were nice, they charge me only 1/2
price, or $400)
6- Rear wiper works only when sunny (!)
7. GM is of no help when problems 1, 2 and 5 started within the
warranty period. (the others started within 10K of the end of the
warranty). Since they could not figure out the problem, they
procrastinated and did diagnostics after diagnostic until I was
over the warranty period and then told me that I needed to pay
for more diagnostic.
Anyhow. Any help on the TBS would be great, as well as if you
have any information on my ABS problems: Apparently it is not a
sensor or module "on or around the wheels" but "somewhere in the
dashboard" (technician direct quote) and the Chevrolet dealer
wants another $300 only to find the problem (but not to fix it).
I cannot afford a new van now, but I am saving for one. So this
one has to last me another 3 years.
