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.

problem #2

Jun 282008


  • 926 miles


Purchased on 6/14/08 with 272 miles, about 2 wks later, tire pressure light comes on and stays on, check tires they are ok, call dealer, was told to bring it in, took on 7/17/08 to dealer, service dept check and fount the sensor open, repair sheet says they replaced sensor 5.890 and ordered module. Waited for them to call me, I called on 8/13/08 they had the part in for wks but had not called, took back in on 8/20/08 and repair sheet states the they found the tire sensor module open again and replaced the tire sensor module 5.890. All work was done under warranty, but this has not fixed the problem. Now the sensor light doesn't stay on all the times, but if you have to sit in traffic and idle than the light comes on and stays on until you turn the car off and restart it. Also, the salesman said it would get 38 mpg and I'm lucky to get 27-29 mpg. After the next visit to the dealer for this sensor and I will contact the state of nc about this car being a lemon.

problem #1

  • 550 miles
The contact owns a 2008 Chevrolet Aveo. The contact stated that fumes leaked into the vehicle and he noticed moisture on all the windows. He activated the defroster, but the moisture remained. The dealer wiped black soot off of the interior windows and stated that the failure may have something to do with the environment, instead of being a manufacturer's defect. The manufacturer agreed with the dealer's environmental theory. The vehicle was also taken to the dealer twice because the air pressure sensor light was illuminating. The tires were filled with nitrogen, but the sensor light continued to illuminate. The contact was advised to keep restarting the engine so that the module would reset itself. When his wife was seated in the passenger seat, the air bag light also continued to illuminate. The current mileage was 1,937 and failure mileage was approximately 550.
