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

Consumer stated that while driving vehicle stalled, then stopped. He was unable to get it restarted. Then, called the dealer/mechanic, who sent someone to pick up consumer's vehicle. Consumer was later called, and was told that they had to replace the fuel sending unit. Consumer insisted that this should not have happened because vehicle was too new. Also, consumer could have been killed because the traffic was still flowing at normal speed when vehicle stopped suddenly. Consumer was in the left lane preparing to make a turn when the failure occurred. Luckily, he was able to come to a complete stop and turn on his hazard lights.
