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 #3

May 202005

Cavalier 2.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,000 miles


2001 Chevy Cavalier. The first two fan settings do not work at all, only settings 3 and 4 work. Also the AC isn't the greatest but I think it just needs cleaned.

problem #2

Cavalier 2.2L 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles

Ever since I owned the car(bought in Feb '06) the Heater and A/C never worked correctly. No matter what setting you put it on, it only blows air out the dashboard vents. It will work out the windshield vents if you push the A/C button, whether in heater mode or A/C mode. If you need to defrost/defog the window, you have to put this on to get the stuff off. Very annoying. Anyone know what this problem is? I will be researching it and posting the fix if I find it.
