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

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


Dash cover cracked. It is very common for Cavaliers. I've seen many a Cavalier in my day and I've never seen one without a cracked dash.

problem #1

Cavalier Z24

  • Automatic transmission
  • 74,000 miles

I loved this car & still do, & I bought it with the cracked dash thinking I could try gluing it back together or else replacing it......NOT.... Tried gluing it, well, that didn't work so then I went to Chevy dealer....piece cost $378 & I didn't even ask how much to put it in!!! Checked Ebay, part was $310 but that is still quite a bit!! The dash rattles something awful, particularly when you drive a long distance, drives you crazy, not to mention it looks terrible! It is cracked in about 5 places, right in the middle, right above the Heat Vent (Defrost) right by the windshield.
