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

I bought the car used with approx. 43,000 miles in 2010, and paid for extended warranty, but didn't test all functions of power windows, only the driver side window worked. I was unaware of this for months because I seldom have others in my car. On July 18th 2014, the drivers window would not work. I had complained about the other windows, but though I might have problems with safety locks.I had already called about the recall that I saw on tv, and was told that part was not at dealers, and would be called when they got the parts. I was told I would be charged for any repairs to windows as my extra warranty had expired. I thought warranty was for 90,000 miles, I did talk to manager, and told him I had C/O numerous times about the 3 non working the same time drivers window quit, the light on odometer quit working.I did have car to jump, and keep running after turning off car, they did fix with ignition kit. Continued to call to see if recalled part was in and was told I could pay for exam on windows on windows at the same time.
