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.

I have a 2003 Chevy Cavalier and my fuel pump failed at 51,200 miles. It was extremely sudden. I had to have it replaced for a total of $460.46usd. I've had the car for a little over a year now and I have driven the car respectfully. This needs to be addressed and recalled asap.

Cavalier 4-cyl

  • 64,301 miles
On a 4 hour road trip my car stopped accelerating as I was driving down interstate 77. Therefore, I pulled off the road and came to a complete stop. I tried to restart the car after a few minutes had passed. However, it would not. After sitting on the side of the interstate for approximately 3 hours waiting for my boyfriend to drive 2 hours out of his way to come and get me and for the tow truck to tow me somewhere...we found a small shop that was approximately 5 miles away. They checked it out and said the fuel pump had gone out on it. They replaced the fuel pump and fuel filter. Parts cost $315 dollars, labor was $100, and misc. Charges and tax fees brought the grand total to $450 dollars. Oh and don't for the tow and the gas that my boyfriend wasted driving down to pick me up and driving me down 2 days later to pick up my car. Old parts are not available!
