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

Aveo 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 67,000 miles


Four days ago I received a letter regarding service that was required to be performed under the extended warranty agreement I purchased with my car. The service needed was on the timing belt. On Sunday, two days after receiving the letter the timing belt broke on my car, causing further damage to the engine. My extended warranty ended at 60,700 miles and I currently have 67,000 miles on the car. The letter was too late in arriving for me to prevent this damage being done, as it seems that the timing belt was supposed to be replaced at 60,000 miles. The car is currently at the dealer with the engine having been sent to a "specialist" for further work.
