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.

  • 13,143 miles


On December 8, 2007 I took the 2007 Chevy Aveo into the dealership because the check engine light was on and the car would act like it was going to stall. The dealer had my vehicle 11 days and replaced 3 gaskets, 2 valves 4 seals and changed the fluids, vehicle was at 13,143 miles. Vehicle was then taken back in February X 2 and March to dealership in which I bought vehicle for the same problem check engine light on and all 3 times the computer would register it was the throttle body and they did nothing and they treated me with no respect. I then took to another dealer and they could not do anything until the light came back on. As anyone knows it takes the computer sometimes up to 300 miles to reset itself. So when the check engine light came back on 3 weeks later I took back to dealer and they stated that it was the trottleboday and it was just recalled 2 weeks prior. All the wasted gas and time. I was in contact with General Motors the whole time and they did nothing for me I had the supervisor tell me after the throttlebody was replaced they would nothing for my time and wasted gas and very ruse man. And now my vehicle is back in the shop for the 6th time in the last 2 months because the check engine light was back on and she was losing power again. They have now replaced spark plugs, wires, ignition coil, fuel injectors., values and cam shaft. So now after 12 visits to the shop almost 35 days without my vehicle being in commission I am filing for the lemon law. I will never purchase another GM vehicle again. Anyone who is having anytype of problems with their vehicle there are laws out there that protect you. Yes it will cost me money to file it, but it will be worth it in the end. And word of wise always keep documentation on anything you have done to your vehicle you never know when you are going to need it.

The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Aveo. While making a turn between 5-10 mph, the contact heard a grinding noise coming from the front end of the vehicle. The dealer replaced the front wheel bearings and checked the air pressure, but the failure continued. The vehicle was taken to another dealer and they performed an unknown repair. The dealer stated that the grinding noise would return in a few months because the failure was normal. The contact noticed oil leaking onto the ground. The dealer confirmed that the oil pump gasket was leaking and the dealer replaced the gasket. The failure mileage was 6,751 and current mileage was 18,000.
