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

  • Automatic transmission

The paint is faded and peeled on the hood and fenders. I have also noticed other Chevy Malibu's with the same problem. What a cheap car. This This I will never buy another Chevy in my life. This isn't the only problem is has. It's in the junk heap now.

The car looks awful. Absolutely horrible. The hood is missing paint. It's a completely different color. The trunk is starting to completely fade.

(reported on)

Malibu LS V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 68,000 miles

The clear coat on my Malibu's paint is peeling off and I'm sure the paint underneath is sure to follow. It is worst on the hood, presumably due to the heat of the engine. I won't have it fixed but it is definitely noticeable. I spoke with the dealer and was told that Chevy may have done something up to five years out but that I was stuck.
