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.

The whole front dash has many cracks in it and appears to be danger since pieces are flying off as I drive.

problem #1

Jan 302008

Cavalier 4-cyl

  • 92,000 miles
The dashboard cracked and I still have not been able to get it fixed I have learned since then that this is a common problem for the Chevrolet Cavaliers and I worry that if I get into an accident that my airbags wont properly deploy because of the cracked dashboard. Now my windshield fogs up causing visibility issues because of the leaks caused by the cracking.
