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.

problem #3

Malibu ES V6

This has actually been an ongoing issue since last winter. I wouldn't complain if this were the only issue, but this car has had many. From what I've read, attempting to repair this on my own,(which is what I normally do), would be ridiculously difficult. Between the breaks, the starter, the fuel filter,(a whole other recurring issue), and the coolant gasket, I would never buy a chevy again.

Ever since I bought this damn car, it has ran like sh*t... The car doesnt like going up hills at all... Now the car is over heating every 5 minutes, my heater is blowing cold air, the belt squills like a 5 year old girl who wants candy but mommy said no and the freaking car always has a funky sound coming from the engine... WTF
