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

This just happened to me to. When I got it towed to the garage and they finished taking it apart the mechanic told me that the end of the strut was not long enough and it finally slipped out. He showed me another strut and it was much longer on the end. This should be a recall and they should have caught that. My problem is that after the price of that repair and the new tire I couldn't afford new struts that day and had to have the old one put back in. I'm so scared its going to happen again. I hope to have it fixed soon before it goes again with new struts only, nothing off another car since there seems to be a problem with them being made to short when the care was made. Thanks for the theft light information, that also seems to work for me. Taking a few sections to turn it over and let all the lights and dings come out is a lot better than waiting 10 minutes. Never again will I buy a Chevy.
