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

Jun 152015

Cavalier 2.2

  • Manual transmission
  • 96,716 miles


I am a chevy lover. But this is the worst used car I have ever owned. IT was so nice and clean in and out , like it came of the assembly line. No pull , noise ,shakes, new tires ect. I am on disability and can not afford much if anything.This my owner history from day one, I have owned it for 7 months. ABS light on, front end shudders when brakes applied over 40 MPH or 60 KMH, When in neautral I pump the brakes then hold , the car nearly stalls. ( is that a vacuum leak ?)

Update from May 27, 2016: Also 2nd month, Transmission gone. A casting flaw on an integral part of the trans housing,( a crack opened) internal. I could not replace the part so I had to have the whole transmission replaced. 2 Weeks later the engine starts stumbleing and black smoke and carbon pours out the exhaust. O2 sencor #1 replaced. 5 weeks later car dies on rd. New fuel pump. 6 weeks after that, the day time lights go out and service light on.

Well nearly new car for sale. Only 155,000.00 km
