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.

1999 Chevrolet Malibu Owner Comments

problem #3

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


Light comes on. AC/Windows shut down, too. Car performance does not suffer otherwise. Mechanic reset the board (for free) which contains the warning lights which fixed the problem for a week. Only happens for short periods of time.

More bad engineering? Cable going to wheel bearing out to be tougher!

Malibu LS

the abs light comes and goes and every time we take it in the repair shop can't get it to duplicate or makes a repair that works temporarily and every time it goes in it acts up shortly after leaving the shop.
