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.

1998 Chevrolet Cavalier Owner Comments

problem #3

This is the third Cavalier I have owned, and the last. Thought it was a great car, guess I was wrong. The radio has been replaced 3 times, the brakes 3 times (they wear funny), the seat broke and I fell into my 3 year old in the back seat. And Chevrolet has once again stood by their word, I am the second owner of this car, so they will do nothing. What a company.

Cd players scratch cd's when first putting in, which GM admitted to in a letter. The third cd player not only scratches but skips erratically and tuner will not alway receive channels just static.
