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.

Cavalier Sedan V4

  • Automatic transmission

I had a recall fixed on the wiring harness. Picked up my car from Serra Chevrolet in Sylacauga, Alabama, drove across the road to Wal-Mart & the thing wouldn't start! Went back to Serra, told them what had happened... it had NEVER done this before & they told me it was a fuel pump problem. It wasn't anything they had done. I should have never had the recall fixed.
