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

Dec 012004

Aveo N/A

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,000 miles


About 1 mo. there was a recall on seat belts. Dealer fixed them. After 1000 miles I notice everything gets hot. Each time I drive the wife's car. I drive to store turn it off, come back 30 to 45 minutes later, starts up ok. Now I drive to the next store, 35 minutes, car is hard to start. Next to stop post office now it won't start or it takes longer. A few times it had to be towed. I took to many shops and no one knows why it is happening. One auto shop said the starter gets hot there's no cover on it, it gets hot without it. I only drive it on very cold days and only stop one time. The wife drives it to church about 1 mile away, then back home. There's a little over 80000 miles. Back in May, another recall wait till we are notified again that was 2014, it now 2015. The problem supposed to a faulty wiring in headlight could cause a fire. I think there should be a RECALL on the starter also.
