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 I4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 136,000 miles


Bought the car when I moved here to Tennessee and wanted air-conditioning. When I bought it, the system needed a charge, so I pumped it up with R-134a when I brought it home. It worked for about three days, then stopped. System holds charge, compressor works but the A/C frickin' blows hot.

NEVER deal with these people. I purchased (1) 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier at $3500,00 w/ trade in from these people and nothing but problems.

On the day I got this car the AC never worked. I asked the sales person, BTW his name is Frank. He said it only needs a recharge, YEAH RIGHT!

They could not do it, it was Saturday and no MECH was around.

So, six weeks later I took my car to a local repair shop. I had the AC recharged for $50.00 and it lasted 3 days. I went back an he could not find the leak. No extra charge, and no refund either.

I took this car to a Chevy Dealer. They looked at it, told me I had (2) bad hoses, and charged me $130.00+

The next week I took this car back to have it fixed and it cost me $411.27. My AC again worked for (3) days then stopped working.

I took the car back a third time, now they tell me that the compressor went bad and to fix it will cost me $878.00 + TAX .

I said NO WAY !!!!

So I have spent at least 591.27 to have this problem fixed and I still have NO AC !

What can I say, I got ripped off by:
