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.

My car started to shake, squeak, and jerk. This has been ongoing for a few days now, after taking it to two different mechanics. I then learned about the safety recalls for the wheel bearing, drive train, and pulley system for the engine. I called my dealership where I purchased the used car and was told they couldn't help me with recalls. I then called GM directly and was told there was no open recall on my car. I further researched and found that to be a lie, your data base alone states there is one that may cause the car to catch fire. This is my first car to purchase and with it having major safety recalls and no one wanting to help, I didn't know who else to contact.

I purchased a 2008 Chevy Aveo in may of 2008 I have had problem with front end vibration and pulling to the left. I started reporting the problem Aug. 08. they rotated tires and that should solve the problem. Again I took it to the dealer Oct. 2008, Mar. 2009, and then again July, 2009. They told me once again that tires needed rotated and front in alignment. I stored the car for the winter Oct. 2009 to April, 2010. I now have taken back for the same problem. They now tell me it has to bent rims with no sign of damage. They just won't spin out true when they are put on machine. This vehicle has never been in any type of accident. Tires are worn out with 20,000 miles on it. I did some investigating and others are complaining that they have had to replace rims. Talk to another dealership about this problem and they told me that these steel rims on Aveo bend easily and have replaced alot of them. Talk to GM about this and told them what I had found out. They will not replace them. Talk with other dealership service manager and he stated that they won't because they would have to admit they know they have a problem with these rims. Call GM again talked to them about this problem and the guy at GM stated I don't care how many complaints there are NHTSA has not issued a recall. I hope that you will take a close look at this complaint. I truly believe GM knows that they have a problem and won't do anything because these vehicles were manufactured in South Korea.
