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 #2

Cavalier 2.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 78,000 miles


when this happened the first time i asked if there was a recall for this problem. because it happened just out of manufacturer coverage limit. i do believe there is a problem here and GM will not fix the problem.

problem #1

Jul 212009


  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,138 miles

As I got into my car w/my kids and turned the a/c on to low, after 20-30 minutes turned it off and a/c did not go off, nor could I turn it up, the button has completely broken and I just had a whole bunch of engine work done 3-4 weeks ago, that cost me $324. I am a single mother still paying what is owed on it and I like my "Cherry Derby", but after already getting some other things repaired, now I have to get the a/c fixed, becuz its been up to 105 and thats too HOT for my little riders in the car. I have had the car since 10/07 and I am not getting problems, my brother-in-law has an 02 Cavalier and has had hardly any problems, WHAT THE HELL IS IT ABOUT THE 2003???? I will be getting a estimate for a/c repairs and a warranty!!!!!
