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

May 062009

Cavalier 2.2L

  • Manual transmission
  • 115,600 miles


I was getting on to the highway and right as i shifted into 5th gear i felt the clutch pedal stick to the floor. I tried pumping the clutch but there was no give. because I couldn't shift I started losing speed in the middle of rush hour traffic and I barely made it to the shoulder. I'm lucky i wasn't killed! I had the car towed back to my house and I just learned that my problem is the clutch hydraulic hose. I have no idea how much this will cost to repair but it really should be free considering it is a factory defect that appears to have happened to many other people. If anyone has any information on this or a possible solution i would love to hear it
