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.

2000 Chevrolet Cavalier Owner Comments

problem #1

  • Manual transmission

Every time I open the driver door, it drops down and doesn't fit back into the body frame when I close it unless I lift the door. When I park on a slight slant as at a curb, the door slams shut on your legs as you try to get out. It has been bad for a while and at first I was told it was a hinge pin and I needed to get it fixed, so I did at $95, but these mechanics also told me that it was a defective hinge and that was what was wearing out the pins. I looked on the Web and I find that Chevy hinges have had problems. When I called the Chevy repair person, he wanted $32 just to look at it. If he knows that these hinges are a problem, why not just say, "Bring it in and we will fix it."
