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 #2

Dec 182009

Cavalier 2.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 119,876 miles


i am an auto mechanic by trade, this is no the first time i have run in to these kind of problem with gm cars, most of the time it has to do with the alarm system. This is bull i don't see why they cant make these problems easier to fix and give you ways to get information.

problem #1

  • CVT transmission
  • 200,000 miles

The car only does this during the summer months. I have 2 young children and we end up getting stranded in a hot car that won't start. I have put a new ignition in it, had the electrical gone through and the steering column. The cost of the unfixable problem has now surpassed what the car is worth.
