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.

2006 Chevrolet Aveo Owner Comments

problem #2

Aveo 4-cyl

  • 72,100 miles


Went to lock driver side door and inside lock would not push down and found outside lock had fallen inside the door panel. Online research indicates this is a very common problem on Aveos due to defective plastic parts and dealerships seem to be charging very high amount to repair. Seems there should be a recall provided by GMC to fix this problem as prevents being able to secure the vehicle and belongings and occupants of the vehicle.
