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.

2000 Chevrolet Malibu Owner Comments

Malibu 6-cyl

This complaint stems from the time I have had this car. A popping noise that comes from the rear of the vehicle from either both the trunk area and or suspension, a hollow sound not very loud though. It happens on uneven surfaces at very low speeds. I brought the car to the dealer four times and sometimes the sound or sounds are noticed but nothing is done, except for lubrication. Sometimes it is hard to duplicate and at other times it can.also it never happens at highway speeds. Only slow speeds and on right or left turns. I hope that the engineers can discover it. The car is a 2000 Chevrolet Malibu. VIN 1G1nd52joy6211245. The car is still under warranty.
