On January 28th 2005, I took my 2003 chevy Cavalier to my gm dealership for service on a recall issued by you and gm, recall #04083. This recall is one of the most blatent disreguard for human life. You gave chevy options! options, that shouldn’t have been given because with these options human life is still at risk! this recall allows chevy to apply grease before replacing the rear lamp bulb sockets, not just to replace them and insure my saftey as a comsumer. My car was serviced on January 28th 2005 for this recall. Grease was applied and with in 3 days my passenger side rear lamp failed and had done so with all signs listed on the recall. But because the dealer had “done� the recall they tried to tell me it was a burnt out light bulb. Which in the end proved not to be. The whole socket was then replaced on January 31st 2005. Fast foward to April, my warranty has since expired. When my drivers side rear lamp fails, also with all the signs listed on the recall, but because the dealer had “done� the recall they tried to tell me it was a burnt out light bulb. I check the lightbulb, which was fine. I called the dealership and spoke with the service manager and addressed the situation. Why were both the sockets not replaced at the time the passenger side failed? the answer I received made me take a step back. I was told, chevy does not allow them both to be replaced unless they are both broken or in this case have failed. Chevy will not replace something unless it is broke…. Even if it is a saftey recall! to clarify the situation I contacted Chevrolets customer service line and received the same information. The dealearship ended up fixing the recall at no charge to me, on April 30th 2005. Why was chevy given any options? why was my life put on the line for a mere $100. 00, if that? this recall needs to be recalled itself and chevy needs to be made to replace each and every rear lightbulb socket on every chevy Cavalier it produced in 2003.

I've owned my 2003 Cavalier for 1 yr. 3 months. I'm very irritated with having to go to the dealership every other month for the same problem. I've had my car in 7 times to get the taillight fixed. The first 2 times the light blew out, my radio completely wiped out my preset stations. I also had my car in 2 months after I bought it because there was a bad snow and as I was driving 5 mph I bumped over a pot hole which ended up cracking my spring and strut on the front pass. Side. I had to pay out of pocket because the repair was $100 less than my deductible. And I was in the service dept. A week before complaining of a squeak coming from my front tire that they put off as the wheel cover. Coincidence?there was no reason that the spring and strut should have cracked like that! I've also, just for the record, asked them twice to check my brakes because as I come to a stop they begin to pulsate. The service dept. Told me I needed new brakes. I've only had my car for 1 year, 24,000 mostly highway miles!!! they want $250. 00 to fix my brakes and they should still be under warranty. Even midas gurantees their brakes w/ a lifetime warranty. You'd think the manufacturer would for an original owner. It's only 2 pads for goodness sake! if I knew how, I'd do it myself. A service tech told me that gm is well aware of these safety hazards that other gm customers like myself are experiencing, yet they aren't doing a recall. Something needs to be done before something bad happens to someone while in their vehicle. Not doing anything is bad business!! customers should be first priority. As a manufacturer, your responsibility is toward your customer if something you sell or manufacture is defective!!!.

Failure Date: 05/01/2001

I own a 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier from new and now have 23,000 miles on it. The problem I have is the decibel level of the turn signal is very hard to hear with the window open or the radio on and find myself forgeting to turn it off after using it to change lanes on the freeway. Because I can not heard the ticking sound. This only confuses other drivers around me. Should be recalled to have a flasher with a higher sound level installed. Please look into this.
