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.

Turn signals work when they want to all the time. This is the exact problem that 670740 other 2001 Malibu have and they can be fixed with a recall. Mine is not covered in the recall when my car has the exact same issues. Why? no crash yet...but soon.

Intermittently, the exterior signal lights will not work properly. The interior flashers operate normally, but the exterior lights will not respond. The manufacturer and the dealer are aware of the problem. If the hazard light switch is pushed several times, then the turn signals would work.

My turn signals and hazard signals do not work properly. Sometimes they come on, but most of the time they don't. I have had numerous near misses in residential neighborhoods and on the highways. I am afraid someone, including myself and my children, will be seriously injured or even killed.
