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.

problem #2

Apr 052013

Aveo LS

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles


I lock my car, and it unlocks itself. That's a HUGE problem! The alarm still goes off when a door is opened, but someone can just walk up and open my doors! It happens at random, whether I manually lock or lock with my key button.

problem #1

(reported on)

Aveo LS 1.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 23,506 miles

I purchased this car in 2004 - overall the car has been a wonderful automobile and that probably explains why I see so many on the road (except for the affordable price). However, less than a month after purchase my remote locks quit working, I quickly discovered that the fuse controling the locks had blown - no biggy right... bought a box of fuses replaced the one, all was good - YIPPEEEEE! Then in 2005, same thing. Then in 2006, same thing. Finally 2007 is here - how long before I replace it again. The cost of the fuses vs. the cost of the car means I would still buy it again, but it's a pain in the ass to pop open the driver side door with a key or open it as wide as possible, break a finger opening the fuse panel (hidden behind the driver side door, pull one fuse, attempt to wrap your eyes around a corner to replace said fuse. Close her all up and try your key again.
