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.

The AC/Heater fan doesn't work until 3 or higher, very annoying sometimes. Haven't looked into fixing it but it seems to be a problem with the Malibu's.

Malibu LS 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission

Fan speeds will slowly stop working, you have to replace the resistor pack under the dash.

Its a very common problem as the pack overheats and resistors burn up.
