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 #2

Malibu V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 112,350 miles


I would never recommend this year and model of car to anyone!!! Chevy screwed up on the line when they created this car and I truly believe they know it!!! Lucky I did not pay full retail price for this car, but even pay what I did was a lot for the trouble. Don't get me wrong the Malibu and Chevy's are great cars but the 2001 are not!!
