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.

Cavalier Ls Sedan Sport 2.2L

  • Manual transmission
  • 70,000 miles


I have a 2002 Ls Sedan Sport Cavalier. Everytime I turn on my Ac/heater and I come to a complete stop, my car literally jerks. When I start moving again, its fine. One time my car jerked again, and my car stalled out on a busy road because of it. I checked my alternator and it was bad,so we had it replaced. The problem still exist though. Can someone please help me!! I took it to a Gm mechanic and they charged me $40 for nothing and just told me thats normal for the car when you use the ac on. I think I know my own car and have been dring it for 7yrs now! I am in desperate need of a solution. I want to get this fixed before winter hits so I don't freeze ti death Please help!
