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

Cavalier 2.2L Ecotec

  • Manual transmission
  • 102,000 miles


I have a 2003 Chevy Cavalier base model, manual transmission. I left for a trip, and the car was running perfectly, just finished the 100k tune-up on it, replaced plugs, boots, and fuel filter. My wife was driving the car to work, and it stalled on her and wouldn't start. I checked EVERYTHING!! when I got back, couldn't find anything wrong, just wouldn't start. Went on to the internet and found many blogs about bad fuel pumps. I went under the car, tapped on the tank, and the car started right up. Major inconvenience due to the tow charges $80 for half a mile, and the replacement part $300. I found many many complaints about these, and yet still no recall on them. I guess I got lucky by getting 102k on it when most of them seem to go around 60k.
