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.

2005 Chevrolet Cavalier Owner Comments

I currently have a 2005 Chevy Cavalier that I purchased in 2005. Within 6 months of having the car my back doors do not operate, do not open. My front doors recently have been having issues in not wanting to shut. There is something with the linkages. I have also had issues with the trunk, it blew off the wires and sounded like a bomb. And my dome light got to where it would not shut off so we removed the bulb. My radio does not shut off when door opens, it plays for 10 minutes afterwards. My car did not have shocks when purchased it, it is becoming one big headache. I drive only Chevrolet vehicles but this car is making me want to drive something other then a Chevy. Is there any recalls on 2005 Cavaliers? or what can I do. I can not afford a new car with working part time and this is not very safe.
