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 #3

Dec 282007


  • 80,000 miles


There has been a failure to the fuel system several different occasions. Fuel regulator has been replaced 3 different times. A fuel pump was purchased 300$ to replace old one. The right tail light has been bogging on and off almost caused several different accidents. I would like to know if I can sell this vehicle or get what I paid for it atleast? I shall take further legal action until something is done.
