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.

Malibu LS 3.1L V6

My 2001 Chevy Malibu died on me 4x while driving. Sometimes dash warning lights don't come on unless you turn the ignition on and off. Otherwise it won't start. The dealer couldn't find anything wrong with it. They said it could be a bad ground, worn ignition switch or something causing a drop in amps to the BCM which could make it wig out. Big help they were.

Malibu LX

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles

This car was bought from a Pontiac Dealer used car lot in July 2005. By mid December I had to replace the transmission which cost $1800.00. By summer time the car would shut off while driving down the road. Sometimes would re-start, other times would start after sitting parked for several days. I have put an additional $1600.00 into this piece of junk and still it is not starting/running very well.

Three times while driving, it just shut down on me. This is very dangerous. After the 2nd time I had it fixed by the used car dealer I purchased it from and he said it was a safety switch or something to let you know about oil, now it just happened again 4 mos. later, on a ramp onto the highway... luckily I didn't get rear ended
