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 #3

Cavalier 2.2L

  • Manual transmission

I absolutely hate it when lights on my gauge cluster are on! I already have my seatbelt light that wont go off and my check engine light(o2 censor and catalytic converter). I got my brakes done and everything was good until i parked my car (which is a standard) and set my e-brake. now the light wont go off! its annoying!

Even after I had new brakes on the car the ABS is on. Clunking and noisy when you touch the brakes sometimes.
