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.

I have a Z24 and my car stalls out and turns off while driving I have contacted a Chevy dealer who stated that the Cavalier's do, but my type of vehicle(Z24) isn't affected. Explained it is and they should see about this. And I would have to pay to get this fixed. Also, when researching this information on the internet I have found many other customers who have had the same problem as I with my type of vehicle. Why would 1 type of car of the same year have the problem and not all of them? it has the same components just designed a little different.
