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.

2003 Chevrolet Cavalier Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 102009

Cavalier 1.8L

  • Manual transmission
  • 107,000 miles


so i have seen many other post of people's slave master cylinder going bad mine did to ok so it's under the transmission and it takes a shop a whole day to fix it not to mention the part cost 350$ the labor at least another 300-500 and that is if your mechanic is an old freind. the first shop i took it too wanted 1300 to fix. i had to pay them 75 for the diagnostics. then tow it to place # 2 i had mine replaced and get this its two weeks later and i get stranded agian only this time instead of the clutch sticking to the floor . the shifter threw itself out of gear and now is completly disengauged. im having the mechanic that fixed it have alook but it seems to me that after reading many people with the same problem i will not buy another gm until they start making parts ect reasonably priced.

my car now is only worth a couple thousand. if i would have known it would cost my much headace and time and nearly 2 thousand in all the ways ive been screwed over this much known problem.i would have donated it and got something thats not a money pit that holds no value.
