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.

2008 Chevrolet Cobalt Owner Comments

Cobalt 4-cyl

I drive a 2008 Chevy Cobalt lt, I have had to take it in twice to get the turn signals to turn themselves off after turning. The most recent incident is my parking brake, the rachet from what I was told broke off, I asked how they said they did not know. I asked how common this happens they said they have never seen it happen before, yet somehow I am responsible for it. I believe it was a manufacturing defect, parking brakes do not just break like that. I drive a manual and my parking brake is kind of imperative to prevent from rolling when it sparked.
