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

Aug 092007

(reported on)

Cavalier 2.2L

  • Manual transmission
  • 100,000 miles


Had it towed, battery terminals were corroded. They serviced battery. Next day, the car was struggling to start so I brought it back to the garage. It completely died again while at the garage. They got a brand new battery and also replaced the solenoid on the starter. Worked fine, then about 5 times in the past two weeks, the car struggled to start but would eventually turn over. Went to use car last night, the remote keyless entru wouldn't work at all. Unlocked the car manually, the car did NOTHING. The clock didn't even come on (the exact same problem I had initially when it got towed). What is the problem???
