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

Cavalier Base 4dr 2.2L I4

  • Automatic transmission

The car would start and run on local roads fine, but would occasionally stall on the highway, especially accelerating hard and/or going uphill. It got progressively worse. I brought it to the dealer and they told me nothing was wrong except it needed a new fuel filter. Paid them $250 to diagnose the problem and put in a filter. 30 minutes later the car stalled again on a major highway and I almost got rear-ended by someone tailgating me. Another $120 to get it towed. Brought it to a nearby -reputable- local mechanic and they determined it was the fuel pump. Repair would have been over $500 including labor but it was covered under my extended warranty. I haven't had this problem since the pump was replaced.
