Venture 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 95,000 miles
The contact owns a 2000 Chevrolet Venture. While driving 55 mph, the contact noticed that the air bag indicator illuminated on the instrument panel. The failure indicated that both air bags were deactivated. The vehicle was driven to the dealer, but they could not inspect the vehicle because the air bag indicator was not illuminated at the time. The failure continued intermittently; however, the air bag indicator remained illuminated. The vehicle was returned to the dealer and they performed a diagnostic test. The contact was informed that the driver's side seat belt latch assembly was defective. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer stated that the vehicle was not under any recalls; therefore, they were not liable for the repairs. The current mileage was 97,000 and failure mileage was 95,000. Updated 3/16/09 the headlight covers fogged up as well. Updated 03/19/09.

Headlights right&left. Condensation is very high and water accumulates which can possibly cause the filiment to blow out it water bounces up into it.this can cause a problem while night driving, espicially on dark roads such as we have in middleburg. The dealer states this is natural etc, but the amount of condensation where the water accumulates and stays in a puddle is not natural, dealer said the heat from filiment will dry it up but this does not happen, if you tap the glass the water runs down to form a puddle....I did report this to them before on the way back from a trip and kind of hoped they were right about drying up but this is not so, at first they said I had a cracked lens but both sides? I wish I had of got a written report of this visit at that time. I told them at the time I was concerned if this was an ongoing problem they should look into it to avoid any future problems. We owned a 1997 van prior to this and they replaced headlights at least 4 times for the same problem, ( this is recorded) file #1-159770583 is the # I was told to use for communicating this problem. I T talked to your Agency verbally (nhta) thank you henry beaudoin

Headlights will randomly go off and then come right back on again. Dealership stated they could not determine a cause because they have not witnessed this erratic operation.
