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.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

i JUST RECEIVED THE 1999 CHEVY MALIBU IN DECEMBER AND IT WAS RUNNING PERFECTLY FINE UNTIL LATE MARCH WHEN I PULLED INTO THE DRIVEWAY AND CUT THE CAR OFF. I WENT TO TURN THE CAR ON FIFTEEN MIN. LATER AND IT WOULD CRANK BUT NOT TURN OVER. I HAD THE FUEL FILTER REPLACED AND AFTER THAT THE SAME PROBLEM OCCURED WHERE I HAD THE VEHICLE TAKEN FOR REPAIRS. THE CAR SAT FOR TWO WEEKS AND STILL NO REPAIR. I THEN HAD CAR TOWED TO PEP BOYS WHO NOW TELL ME THAT THE MOTOR IS BLOWN..THE VEHICLE HAD NO PROBLEM, SYMPTOMS (LIKE ENGINE LIGHT, BLUE OR ANY OTHER COLOR SPOKE) PRIOR TO THIS ISSUE.....IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT I BUY A NEW CAR. WHAT KIND OF S--T IS THAT I ONLY HAD THIS CAR FOR 3 MONTHS AND THEN THIS......

PLEASE HELP ME I MAY HAVE TO JUNK THE CAR BECAUSE I CANNOT KEEP IT ON THE PROPERTY WHERE I LIVE..IT HAS RUINED MY TRAVEL TO AND FROM IMPORTANT PLACES LIKE WORK, DOCTORS, ETC.ETC. IS THERE ANY WAY THAT CHEVY WILL HELP RELIEVE THIS ISSUE. I WAS ABOUT TO TAKE IT IN FOR THE RECALL THE FOLLOWING WEEKEND THIS HAPPENED.. BUT FIRST DANG GONE THING WAS THIS ISSUE.......HELP...HELP....HELP....HELP... I AM A VETERAN OF THE US ARMY AND A VEHICLE IS ONE OF THE LIVELIHOODS NEEDED FOR ME TO ASSIST OTHER VETERANS... THIS HAS REALLY TURNED INTO A HARDSHIP........THANKS GM.... DONATE A CAR TO ME THE ONLY THING I CAN AFFORD RIGHT NOW IS FREE AND THERE'S A PRICE IN THAT.. I PAID FOR IT, NOW HELP ME OUT, DARN IT!

GOD BLESS AMERICA
