 I just bought a 2005 chevy cavalier with 60k miles on it, one owner, and never missed a maintenance appointment. the car is immaculate. a few days after i purchased it the speedometer got stuck at 18mph and then dropped to 0 when parked. all other guages work except the rpm's ... neither the speeddometer or tackometer has moved an inch since they dropped to 0. it is a serious safety concern. i went online to try to look up what the problem may be, and instead found blogs where 1000's of people are complaining of the same issue, same story on their 05 cavaliers. this definatley should be considered a recall! i am not sure how much this is going to cost, but it obviously is a continuous problem for most 2005 chevy cavalier owners, and chevy should take responsibility!

 I was on my way home today and think god my husband was driving..my gauges are not working on the car which is does from time to time. we merge on a major highway and the gas petal accelatored and would not stop it just keep getting faster,, my brakes would not even stop it or the emergency brake either..we had to run some red lights because we could not stop it so we could try to get home without crashing the car to stop it but we could slow it down putting it in neutral but it was burning up the brakes and transmission. finally we got in front my my house and had to put it in park fast just to stop it. the gas pedal only accelates and the brakes don't even work on it...we could of died today!!! i'm so glad i was not driving it..i would of had to call 911 and have the cops box me in to stop. i messed up my brakes and transmission on it just to stop it today. i went online to check for any recalls and i see that people had problems but no recalls...i saw my life flash for my eyes today and put my trust in my car everyday thinking that they made it right..???

 As i was driving in a residential area near my residence, i noticed the speedometer stuck @ 30mph even after i stopped for a traffic light. my son removed the fuse & then re-inserted it. speedometer then went back to zero so i thought it was a loose fuse. same thing happened several days later and speedometer stuck @ 50mph. my son removed & re-inserted the fuse and speedometer went back to zero. but a few days ago while driving in a 30mph zone, the speedometer eventually stuck @ 110mph. this appears to be a very common problem with this make & model of vehicle. i'm surprised that a recall has not occurred because this is definitely a safety issue.

 Speedometer cluster broke and cost $400.00 to be rebuilt. a service report was issued to the dealership that this is a common problem. after searching the web for complaints, i found there has been thousands of complaints on the same issue on all gm vehicles. why is there no recall?

 1st issue was the speedometer started malfunctioning off & on. it shows going much faster than car really is going. doesn't happen all the time. 2nd issue was warning light which a station told me that the code is for a malfuntion in the fuel line, it shows a major leak, but repairmen could find no real leak. warning light does go off & on, so not on all the time. 3rd issue was off & on the front driver & passenger windows start rolling down or up and then just quit, but start working again after shutting off engine a couple times. 4th issue was the rpm meter started doing what the speedometer had been doing. 5th issue is the passenger side wiper stopped working. that's the only one that hasn't fixed itself. all the others are off & on working or not working. the wiper was the latest incident with all of them starting in the past 6 months.

 This vehicle has lost the speedometer sveral times over the last 20,000 miles and now it has quit completely, i went to an on line forum and they say this has been happening a lot with no recall from general motors. usually before it would bounce up to 35 or 40 and then start working again, but it is dead now. no movement at all

 I have a 2005 chevy cavalier about a month ago my gauges wont work. the speed and coolant temp. gauge are not accurate at all, the speed gauge either starts at 70 and goes beyond the 120mph mark or just stays on zero which i have no idea what speed im going. i heard people got the gauges replaced but still having problems with it. i would like to know if there is a recall on cluster gauges. once again my speedometer and coolant temperature gauge don't work. thank you

 I have a 2005 cavalier which i purchased with 17,000 miles on it. i am currently at 28,500 approximately. my car is currently experiencing problems with the temperature gauge, gas gauge and check engine light. it also appears to be accelerating on it's own. i have checked several websites and find that this problem seems to in addition to the other issues, i am experiencing problems with my horn (i am not familiar with the relationship they components of a car have with each other). my understanding is that chevy did a recall do to defects with steering problems in the 2005 cavaliers. could the problems that i and other are experiencing be a part of that recall, since it is all apart of the dashboard be common for the year, make and model of my car?

 I have a 2005 chevrolet cavalier. for the past few weeks the speedometer has been not working correctly. it will get stuck at 20 mph or it will just sputter up and so i am now constantly having to guess what speed i am going. i have read many forums of people with a 2005 cavalier having the same problem. if this is happening on a lot of cars, it should not be the responsibility of the owner to fix it. this is very much a safety hazard and should not be happening to so many people, it obviously means it is a faulty part. please consider looking into this problem since many people are having the same issue that i am.

 My 2005 chevrolet cavalier has been failing on me since i bought it in 2005. first the gas gauge stopped working. i learned to live with that using the trip odometer. next, in the middle of a cross-country drive, my speedometer stopped working! it would do so occasionally, but now it never works at all, and the other gauges have now quit as well. i have run out of gas in the middle of a snow storm, and this incident blocked traffic and risked my life from being hit by another car or freezing to death. i've gotten countless tickets because of these defects. this is a common problem among 2005 cavaliers, very common, and i am appalled that gm has not issued a recall. i've had the gauges replaced but before long the problem starts all over again. it has cost me hundreds, and i'm sure it's just a matter of time before i or someone else with this problem end up injured from being out of fuel, speed, etc. the gauges in my car now do not work at all, i have to rely on a gps for speed and just fill up my car every other day to ensure i don't run out of gas again. i have seen hundreds of stories just like mine with the very same vehicle. something must be done!

 At highway speeds, the speedometer needle on our 2005 chevrolet cavalier fluctuates wildly and is unreadable. reducing speed greatly or changing rate of acceleration/deceleration will correct the problem temporarily, but it recurs every time the car passes 55 miles per hour.

 I drive a 2005 chevy cavalier and all gauges have stopped working completely. it first started with the rpm's gauge about 10 months ago, then the speedometer about 6 months ago, now with the gas gauge just a few days ago. i can not longer tell how fast i am going, nor how much gas is actually in my tank. i propose a recall as i have seen many complaints of the same issues. i like to buy american and i feel if american auto makers want to keep their customers they need to step up the quality of products and service!

 I drive a 2005 chevy cavalier and on very hot or cold days, or when i drive longer than usual distances (over 30 miles), the speedometer often malfunctions, either by getting stuck reading over 110 mph, even when stopped, or by reading under zero, even when i'm moving. and lately the temp gauge has started doing this as well, alerting to me overheating on cold days even though the engine is not overheating and the check engine light never comes on. it's frustrating and frightening and unsafe.

 When cold outside the temperature gauge will read inaccurate temperatures and gauge is stuck to far left and does not budge. a week later the gas gauge also gave out. do not know how much gas in tank! was driving across the state on a vacation trip and was using cruise control. once taken off cruise control the speedometer is stuck at 65mph and will not change. very dangerous. going on long distanc trips and not knowing how much gas, my speed or the temperature of the internal system is scary indeed.

 When cold outside the temperature gauge will read inaccurate temperatures and gauge is stuck to far left and does not budge. a week later the gas gauge also gave out. do not know how much gas in tank! was driving across the state on a vacation trip and was using cruise control. once taken off cruise control the speedometer is stuck at 65mph and will not change. very dangerous. going on long distanc trips and not knowing how much gas, my speed or the temperature of the internal system is scary indeed.

 At highway speeds, the speedometer needle on our 2005 chevrolet cavalier fluctuates wildly and is unreadable. reducing speed greatly or changing rate of acceleration/deceleration will correct the problem temporarily, but it recurs every time the car passes 55 miles per hour.

 I drive a 2005 chevy cavalier and all gauges have stopped working completely. it first started with the rpm's gauge about 10 months ago, then the speedometer about 6 months ago, now with the gas gauge just a few days ago. i can not longer tell how fast i am going, nor how much gas is actually in my tank. i propose a recall as i have seen many complaints of the same issues. i like to buy american and i feel if american auto makers want to keep their customers they need to step up the quality of products and service!

 I have a 2005 chevrolet cavalier and i have the same complaint as every one else my gauges are going hay wire.1st started at 62000 miles the rpm started messing up 2nd the speed gauge was next acting as if it didnt wont to move.3rd now at 89000 miles the temp gauge is saying its hot when its not look under hood i see no heat coming from engine,check the coolant not steamn.i am pissed and tired of this car.all three gauges that i mention are taking turns goin up and down. from the start when i brought this car it had electrical problems when i brought this car it had 8 miles and mine you this is my 2nd chevrolet cavalier of the last model and it had electrical problems.so gm swallow ur pride and fix these cars i dont have 500~800 to fix some thing that should be recalled on your behalf.this is an issue

 I have a safety issue with my 2005 chevrolet cavalier. my speedometer quit working and i cannot tell how fast i'm going. i was in another state when i encountered this problem and had to rely on a gps to monitor speed while driving on the interstate. i have read many on-line compliants from other owner and gm, for some unknown reasons, haven't issued a recall to fix the instrument cluster problem. i have also read that the cost to fix this problem is $800 or more. i find this unacceptable for an american car company to charge for this repair. this is a serious manufactory safety issue and should be fixed free of charge. my car has only 55,000 miles on it and it's not safe to drive.

 I drive a 2005 chevy cavalier and recently the speedometer and fuel gauge have stopped working. the speedometer continued to climb while i was driving on the highway this weekend, passed 110 mph and ended up pointing straight down. today when i got in my car to go to work, not only was the speedometer broken, but the fuel gauge was pointing about 40 degrees passed the full mark. this is an extremely unsafe condition. i don't have the $500+ to spend to fix this, but cannot imagine driving without knowing my speed or whether i'm about to run out of gas. i've done some research on this, and it appears that many other cavalier owners have experienced this same exact problem.

 The instrument panel gauges started going out of whack. the temperature gauge needle moved all the way over to the right interfering with the speedometer needle, so that the speed does not show correctly. at first the needle went back down, but kept getting worse as time went on. the problem began about 2 weeks ago. yesterday, i had a diagnostic test run on it and the mechanics told me the whole instrument cluster panel needed to be replaced and would cost over $500, an amount i do not have at this time.

 The speedometer on my 2005 cavalier has been broken for about a month now. it usually stays around 0, but will sometimes get stuck at various incorrect speeds. i had the output sensor changed, and it made no difference. my mechanic hooked his computer up to the car and it says that nothing is wrong with it. i was told that changing the input sensor, which is inside the transmission will cost about $750 and take 11 hours to do. i have 2 mechanics looking for solutions, but they have found none so far.

 I recently purchased a used 2005 chevy cavalier. the speedometer does not work. the needle will move clockwise but does not go back down when i slow down--thus, by the time i park my car at my destination, the speedometer needle is basically pointing straight down. the problem gets worse the longer i drive (in one trip). i think it also gets worse the faster i go. because of this problem, the speedometer is essentially useless. i haven't driven the car much because i recently bought it, so i am not sure how often this problem will occur.

 Tl*the contact owns a 2005 chevrolet cavalier. while driving approximately 35 to 55 mph on normal road conditions; pressure was applied to the accelerator pedal and there was an unintended increase in the acceleration. the engine revved extremely high which caused the abs, engine, and traction control warning light indicators to illuminate on the instrument control panel intermittently. immediately after applying pressure to the brake pedal, the vehicle began driving normally. an independent mechanic was unable to duplicate the failure. the front driver and passenger power window mechanism also failed without warning. the window motor was replaced; however, when the window was activated the response time was slow which may have caused the window shield wipers to malfunction. the speed odometer and rpm gauges displayed inaccurate readings which could be related to the vehicle intermittently exhibiting reduce engine power. the contact had concerns of the safety risk involved. the vehicle has not been repaired. the contact had concerns of the safety risk involved. the vin was unavailable. the failure mileage was 49,000 and the current mileage was 74,400.
