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

  • Automatic transmission
  • 56 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Aveo. The vehicle has been failing ever since it was purchased. While driving between 35-70 mph, the contact smells something burning. The contact left the vehicle at the dealer on four occasions for repair, but no work was ever performed. The road conditions were dry and sunny at the time of the incident. Occasionally, while driving 40 mph, the vehicle will not switch gears and the cruise control does not operate properly. The headlights turn on and off without the vehicle turned on. The automatic door locks no longer work and the contact has to use her key to enter the vehicle. After locking the doors, they sometimes do not open from within the passenger compartment. The contact carries a hammer in the vehicle in case she has to break the windows to enter the vehicle. The current mileage was 5,080 and failure mileage was 56. Updated 5/30/08 the air bag light stayed on, the trunk lid would pop open while the consumer was driving, the driver side door would open as well, the transmission had a strange roaring sound and it was also hard to upshift and downshift, the odometer would jump forward on its own when it was parked and then restarted, the horn would blow on its own when no one was in the vehicle.
