CarComplaints.com Notes: Widespread instrument panel failure is a common and frustrating reality for many 2004-2005 Chevy Cavalier owners. They're often left in the dark when it comes to knowing how fast they're going, what their engine temperature is, or even how much fuel they have left in the tank.

The likely culprit is a series of bad "stepper motors" which control the gauges and are no longer covered under warranty. Think not being able to see your speed is a safety issue and should be recalled for all owners? We'd agree. Trouble is, apparently the NHTSA does not.

SERVICE, ABS, & TRAC OFF lights all come on when put in reverse. I don't know what the cause of this problem is. My car when I start it sputters a little as if it want to shut of. Also, it doesn't start right up when I put more then a quarter tank of gas in it. I have to keep pushing the gas while turning the ignition. Any suggestions?
