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.

2001 Chevrolet Malibu Owner Comments

problem #1

May 072005

Malibu 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 34,000 miles


Driver's side window switch stalls before rolling up. Turn signals do not work all the time. Internal fan switch only works on 5. if I turn the fan switch on or off, turn signals will start working instantly. Turn signal problem started right after the blower went out. I cannot listen to the radio and run the rear defroster at the same time. The driver's side seat belt will not release all the time when I try to put it on. The car has died as I tried to turn left at a stop light. This was a used car with less than 30K miles when I bought it in March 2005, no problems until about May. Now a problem a day seems to appear. The car now has 39K miles on it and my husband wants me to trade it in already because he says it is going to "nickel and dime us to death". I have seen several of these problems on recall sites, but the dealer said that my VIN was not included in the recall.
