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.

problem #2

Malibu LS V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 93,206 miles


So I bought My Malibu last year and have since bought THREE clips for the passenger side shade. The hook on the inside is snapping off right in the ceiling of the car!! I can't pull the shade down with any level of force or it snaps again. Although this part is inexpensive its such a pain to have to do this all the time and remember to not allow anyone to pull it down!!

All the plastic parts have fallen out of the ceiling. The hangers in the back, the plastic holder for the shade. This car sucks.
