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

There was no specific event leading up to the failure. The failure occurred in my 2006 Chevy Aveo. The thermostat housing (made of plastic) completely broke apart and all the antifreeze flowed out. There was no warning. I have ordered a new housing and thermostat, which Chevy has re-designed to longer plastic, and my husband will be replacing. Obviously, Chevy knew there was an issue or they would have stuck with the plastic version. I believe this item should be recalled. Thank you

2306 Chevrolet Aveo lt thermostat housing consists of two plastic parts glued together with thermostat between the two halves. The glued joint came apart and the thermostat fell out on the road. The coolant pumped out and the engine severely overheated. Towing charges from a remote highway location were $190. Repair at lamb Chevrolet in prescott, AZ, totaled $195. This was found to be a common Aveo problem and should have been a factory recall item!
