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

Jul 092006

Aveo 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 79,750 miles


Purchased vehicle nearly new from a dealer in May 2005. Handling and steering were stable and predictable, but has deteriorated significantly since roughly 40,000 miles. I now experience severe sloppiness in the steering, excessive body-roll while turning and the car is buffeted in even light winds, especially at speed (55 to 65 mph) on highways. Under light-to-moderate acceleration, I occasionally experience strong torque steer while running over varying road surfaces or imperfections and will veer suddenly to the right or left. Lower control arm bushings are severely worn and are to be replaced. These have been a premature wear item on this model's predecessor, the Daewoo lanos. Compared to other vehicles, the early wear of suspension and steering components on this model is a potentially fatal shortcoming.
