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.

2014 Chevrolet Spark Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 232014

Spark 4-cyl

  • 15,000 miles


Traveling at highway speed with heavy mist and active snowfall, the windshield wiper motor overheated and stopped working, creating an emergency situation on the highway where the driver could not see out the windshield. Dealer had to replace motor from damage. New motor again overheated during windshield wiper use at highway speeds in heavy dirty mist from vehicles ahead, creating a second emergency situation where driver could not see. Dealership notified this owner that this model car has mechanism to protect the motor from overheating during heavy use, which causes the wipers to cease. This is dangerous as the motor should not be designed to suddenly stop working at highway speeds; it should be strong enough to handle the load of these common winter conditions.
