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.

2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 212014

Cavalier STD Std 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 240,000 miles


Was told when originally noticed at about 219000 that it was nothing to worry about and would never go beyond being a slight wobbly. Well, I took the Chevrolet dealership for their word and continued to drive and actually thought they were correct as it did seem to stay the same until today when the top half of steering column came off in my lap as I turned a corner. Lucky for me I was at low speed and got stopped and did not hit another car.

I called the dealer that had told me It would be OK and was basically told there was no recall and car had too many miles on it to be covered under any warranty so I said I will contact someone else at GM and was hung up on . I have really enjoyed this car and a lifetime of driving GM cars even when employed as a service writer at a Ford dealership but I feel that what happened to me could be a bigger issue if it happened at highway speed
