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

Aveo 4-cyl

I have A2006 Chevrolet Aveo. I noticed that the left side of the vehicle was sagging. I took the vehicle to the local dealer since the vehicle has just under 26,000 miles on it and it is still under warranty. The dealer said that the springs on the left side had to be changed. Within a week the springs were replaced. When I took the vehicle home, one mile from the dealer, I noticed the next day that the vehicle was still sagging. I contacted the dealer and he said to bring the vehicle back in. This was done. After a day, I contacted the dealer and was told that the vehicle was 1/4 inch lower on the left side then the right. I was also told that the dealer checked another 06 vehicle and an 08 vehicle that they had on the property and found that the were also sagging. Then then contacted GM and were told that the vehicle was with in specks. I was given the number for GM and I made a call to them. After an hour on the phone and two different people, I was told that the vehicle was within specks and there was nothing they could do for me. I was also told that if a recall were to come up re: My complaint, they would contact me. I was also give a complaint #71600676168. If you were to look at my vehicle from the rear you would also see that the vehicle is sagging to the extent that the naked eye can see it. I may not an engineer but the naked I can see the sag. I do know that when a vehicle sages to one side or the other, you change the center of gravity. At this point I feel the vehicle is a hazard on the road and under certain conditions could cause an accident. I also can not believe that I am the only owner of this type of vehicle who has made a complaint to GM. If you can be of help to me in this matter, please feel free to contact me. I am also looking in to the lemon law to see if I have a case. By the way I like the car, I just want it fixed and hope this problem dose not cause a problem to any other owner's. thank you
