Clutch Problems

2005 Chevrolet Cavalier 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


I would like to warn owners of a problem with the hydraulic clutch in the 2005 Chevy Cavalier. The line from master cylinder to slave cylinder may be rubbing on the farm and is wearing through and one day you will step on the pedal and it will go right to the floor and stick there, leaving the engine engaged to the transmission. I talked with General Motors and they more or less just laughed at me. Too bad they say you are off warranty.. only in time not mileage (63, 000 KM). Hopefully no inexperienced driver has this happen to them or there could well be a serious accident even leading to death. GM doesn't want to hear about it.

Best Features

Up to this issue my car has been pretty much faultless.

Worst Features

I think GM needs to come out with a recall and have this isse repaird, and to those of us who have paid $600.oo to fix it, we should be reimbursed at least for teh cost of parts or labor if not both.
