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.

2009 Chevrolet Cobalt Owner Comments

problem #1

I purchased a new 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt from classic Chevrolet in sugarland, tx on June 8, 2009. On June 10, 2009 the clutch pedal fell off as a result of a retainer not being secured at the lordstown factory. At 8848 miles, on September 23, 2009 I took the vehicle in for its first service work to the same dealership. I informed them that the clutch pedal had become inoperative and that I had secured the locking nut but asked them to check it further. The dealership found other retainers missing from the clutches master cylinder. The car had left the factory in an unsafe driving condition that could have resulted in an injury to myself or others.
