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

Jan 012007

Cavalier 2.2L Ecotec

  • Manual transmission
  • 1,000 miles


Typical modern manufacturing found on most cars today so a $10 bearing failure costs you $150 to fix. Oh well, progress. Rear wheel bearing grinding when I got the car at 120K miles and it ground away for over a year no big deal just noisy. Somehow they don't seize just get loud so its no need to run screaming to the dealer to get it fixed rather do it at your leisure. Get an aftermarket wheel hub for about 100 -120 bucks.

I don't consider this a screwup part but rather just wear and tear replacement subsequent to driving so its not a rant. Still a 120 buck hub where a $10 bearing and race would suffice torques me some.
