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.

I own a 1998 Chevy Malibu. This vehicle will cut off while driving. I bought this vehicle brand new in June 1998 and had to take it to the shop for repair the next month. The service department at shaver motors has never been able to fix it. There is something wrong with this car's electrical system. I was driving in Chicago on 80 90 toll road and this vehicle stopped for no reason while I was doing 55 miles per hour. I listed one incident date but have had numerous other problems. Also, when I first purchased the vehicle I had to replace the tires after less than 3000 miles, they were also bad.

Consumer purchased vehicle on 4-10-98 from roger dean Chevrolet Inc.---561-683-8100. Service # is 561-640-1835. Took vehicle to dealer on 4-20-98 due to noise coming from rear of passenger's side. The service representative said it was the cooling fan. Since then the noise has gotten louder, and vehicle was taken back on 4-27-98 for same noises, service technician said it was the fuel pump inside the gas tank, and that the noise is normal. But if consumer does not hear noise she should be worried. Consumer is worried because the noise gets louder everyday.
