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.

2004 Chevrolet Aveo Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 142004

Aveo 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 5,600 miles


While driving on I-94 made a sudden decrease in speed from 70 mph to 60 mph and car swerved out of control, and the only thing saving me from flipping the car was after market rims and tires. Thump sound, sounded like a flat tire, checked all the tires and they were fine. Checked under the hood, engine was titled to driver's side, after inspection on side of expressway found out that the half shaft was completely destroyed as well as transmission mount bolts. There is no reason for these bolts to fail if the car is driven respectively.
