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.

Aveo 4-cyl

After buying my car brand new the air bag light went on and stayed on till this day. At the beginning I thought it was only the passenger air bag and went and asked about it at the dealership where they actually informed me that it wasn't only the passenger airbag thats not working, rather none of the airbags work. That was made clear a month later when my dad, grandmother, and brother were driving it and got T-boned by a truck and of course non of the airbags went off. I mean getting tboned by a truck is pretty serious thing where air bags should deploy! the Aveo is not the safest car to start out with but to also have zero airbags thats pretty messed up, pretty much a death waiting to happen, because lets be real here, I stand no chance if I get in an accident in that car. Might as well no have seat belts on there either. When contacted the dealership more than once they have nothing to say other than pay us and well look into it then you'll pay us more. I will never buy another Chevrolet car again.
