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.

Cavalier

  • 42,000 miles

This car has been a lemon. It now has 45,000 miles on it - the plug wires had to be replaced at 17,000 miles. The head gasket has been replaced 3 times. The timing chain guard broke. The water pump was replaced less than a year ago and needs to be replaced again! DON'T ANYBODY BUY A CAVALIER unless you like to throw away money.
