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 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

I have a '01 Chevrolet Malibu, my fuel injector went out of car, antifreeze chamber leaking (replaced), turn signal unit went out. ABS system had to be replaced, went out..all under extended warranty. All under 60,000 miles. Dealership (bobb Chevrolet) oh has no recalls on this car, I believe this should be listed as a lemon.

Defective"O" ring at fuel line/injector pump caused gasoline to spill on engine block. The car would still run but steady stream of gas pouring onto the engine block. Gas fumes were picked up by air/heater intake filling cabin with gas vapor. Engine fire or cabin flash fire probable under the right conditions. Hopefully, this was an isolated incident with Chevrolet Malibu. I requested the "O" ring from dealer, and was told it had to be sent back to GMC. Any questions, please feel free to contact me. Thanks a mauro lanziseve. ********dims 11 IVOQ entry posted after 12/12/02 cut-over to artemis****770797.
