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 #3

Mar 042007

(reported on)

Cavalier LS 2.2L

  • Manual transmission
  • 55,000 miles


Like the rest of the Cavalier owners with the same problem I have, I am completely pissed that this problem would not be a recall... It's obvious that it occurs frequently, so fix it already.

problem #2

(reported on)

Cavalier LS Sport 2.2

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles

When turning the wheel a significant amount, such as when turning into a parking space or backing out of the driveway, there is a "clang" from under the front of the car. A short while after it started I had the dealer look while still under warranty. The dealer tightened some front suspension components, but soon after the problem came back. Please let me know if you know the cause or permanent fix to the problem.
