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 Model 2.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 56,300 miles


Our problem with the car, (2002 Chevy Cavalier) recently our airbag light on the dash came on and wouldn't turn off, we got a second opinion about the car from a mechanic.. he said the censors went bad and the airbag wouldn't deploy if a crash were to happen.. we were nervous..he told us the fix would cost $416.00 at a garage.. our big decision would be to either trade it in,or to get it fixed... but $416 is not a great price a lower middle class family.. we then heard we could get a half working one from a discount auto site... that didn't help my disposition. I wanted a fully working one to promise the safety of me or anyone who drives that car.. I need some advise ..maybe a third opinion?
