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

12/30/07I was driving home from work, the battery light and brake light stayed on while driving, then the car suddenly started to lose power, all of the interior lights went off, the radio and heater went off, the headlights dimmed. I went into the dealership the next day, they had it until the 1/3/08"could not duplicate the problem".we picked up the car from the dealership, and drove it home. That night, the electrical problem started again, but the car died and would not start. We had it towed. They said that it started for them the next day, and they "could not duplicate" the problem, it had a low battery, they charged the battery. On the 17th the car had the low battery light and brake light on again while driving, so we were driving to the dealership, but on the way, it had the same "symptoms" and died, it was towed. They said"could not duplicate the problem". all they did was "drive it 15 miles one day" then "6 miles another". I picked the car up on the 21st because they were not doing anything to find or fix the problem. That evening the airbag light in the car came on and stayed on, so I brought it in on the way to work, they "forgot" to clear the codes in the car computer. On 1/29 (daytime), the car died again, with the same "symptoms" leading up to it. I called the dealership to have them come and look at the problem. They said on site "something looks loose",so they had it towed to the dealership, and when I went to pick up the car the next day the only thing they did was replace the battery. I got into my car and turned it on, and the brake and battery light stayed on even when the parking brake was not engaged. I went into the service center to tell them the problem, and they kept my car until Friday. They replaced the ignition switch. Today, 2/7, I turned on my car, and the brake and battery light stayed on while I started driving to work. I intended to go to the dealership, but before I got there the two lights(battery and brake)turned off.
