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.

problem #3

My dash and glove box rattled constantly whether on rough or smooth road, my dash now has a crack in it in the middle

Cavalier ZR 2.2

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,000 miles

Over bumps or on smooth surfaces, the dash squeaks and rattles. I really like this new car but I learned my lesson, if you are about to buy a used car, make sure that you are as anal about everything as you possibly can be, the over all car is nice, but the little squeaks and rattles are what's most annoying about it.
