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.

2002 Vauxhall Zafira Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 162007

Zafira 1.6L

  • Manual transmission
  • 49,000 miles


Where do i start!! Had a problem since August 2007 and even a Vauxhall garage can't fix it. Exhaust Emissions light is always on, car is poor to start and when it does the drive off is awful. Take this over 30 mile an hour and the car pulls, the emission light flashes. Waiting at a junction i need to rev the car or it will conk out. Can't go near hills as the car has no pulling power. Have broken down twice. Coil pack renewed, 2 new sensor boxes, fuel valve and still nothing has helped.

Worst car ever! and can't believe a bloody garage doesn't know whats wrong it. Ripping me off constantly!
