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

problem #1

Malibu LS V6

Sunday night while my son and his passenger were traveling home, he hit a small pothole on a 2-lane highway and both airbags deployed. He was able to pull over safely. They complained of a headache. There was no damage to the front of vehicle and I took pictures of the car. The air spoiler under the front of car still had the soft blacktop filler from pothole on it. Both tires and rims were fine, with no damage. The mud guards behind the 2 front tires were also good.

After looking at the front end in daylight, I can't find any damage to this car, with no reason why airbags went off. My son is not a saint but I can't blame it on him this time. Maybe there is a major problem here. It will cost hundreds, if not thousands to fix the car. Money that my son or I do not have. The car is sitting in the drive while we are still in shock.
