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.

2008 Chevrolet Aveo Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 192007

Aveo 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 18 miles


While at work at larson automotive, as a sales manager, in baraboo Wisconsin I went to move a 2008 Chevy Aveo. This vehicle was brand new. I started the car and shifted from reverse to first gear (manual transmission) and the side air bag exploded. I did not purchase vehicle. The result of the noise caused a significant loss of hearing in my right ear, my right side of my face went num and tingling. As of today my hearing is still not fully functional. I am scheduled for a recheck next Monday on November 26, 2007.
