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.

2002 Chevrolet Malibu Owner Comments

Malibu 6-cyl

My heater/ac fan speed control switch has 5 speeds on it. They all work up to number 4. when I turn it on up to 5 it shuts off the fan motor. Number 4 speed is not fast enough to keep the ice from the windshield and not fast enough to keep the car cool with the ac when it is hot outside. I don't know if it is set this way or if it has a faulty switch. [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
