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.

2001 Chevrolet Cavalier Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 112004

Cavalier 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

(1) while driving, going over small bumps or small pot holes, car begings to make a loud vibration noise up in the front wheel area and the anti lock brakes freeze and cause car to skid on dry or wet conditions. On several occasions traction control light stays lit then goes off after driving a period of time. (but no noise) took to local Chevrolet dealer, and found no problem, as of today, car continues to do the same incident. Been going off and on for the last 2yrs. Had brakes serviced, new pads and rotors turned, made things worse.. car wobbles when comming to a stop. Also car grabs and lets off when stopping, feels like it's pushing then letting off the brakes off and on.
