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 #1

Nov 052007

Malibu LS V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles


Doubtful I will buy another GM product. I will dig up the specifics and file another complaint but this is now the second or third time I have had my 99 Malibu in to have the rear seat belt buckles replaced. The first were under warranty. They now want $275 for the pair. The part that is broken is the plastic strip that puts tension on the belt and keeps the buckle from sliding. The dealer insists they are cosmetic. I don't think they will hold a person or a child seat. Are you ready for a lawsuit GM?

I have also been very disappointed with the brakes, had to replace the intake manifold gasket before 60K miles and have gone through several electrical system components. I wouldn't recommend any GM product with the V6 engine.
