2003 Chevrolet CAVALIER Electrical System Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID678226
 Internal NHTSA #10230247
 Model Year2003
 File date01/01/07
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemMy 2003 chevrolet cavalier ls has a malfunctioning speedometer, gas gauge, and sometimes temperature gauge and tachometer. The vehicle had not sustained any damage that could have possibly caused the malfunction; this problem is solely the result of poor manufacturing. After searching online and calling chevy i confirmed that the problem is with the gauge cluster, an electronic component behind the dash. This cluster costs $500 to replace, presumably with one that works properly, a concept which is hard to imagine with the chevy cavalier. Somewhere in the manufacturing process general motors must have decided to cut a few dollars and get some cheap parts, because the malfunction is widespread and consistent in all the reports i've read. This issue absolutely needs to become a recall so that chevy is forced to pay the $500 replacement fee; and monetary justice aside, malfunctioning gauges could create potentially life-threatening dangers. It is not a recall yet, but is absolutely needs to become one.
