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

problem #1

Sep 082009

Malibu LS V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 42,727 miles


While driving at speed between 60 to 75 mph the cruise control stops working although the indicator for on/off shows a green light for on status. When pressed the set button to re-engage cruise control, the system does not set and hold the desired or any speed. When I made a 10 minute stop for gas after driving for 1 hour during which the cruise control stopped working I resumed my 2 hour trip. The cruise control worked for 5 minutes but shut off again even though the on/off indicator displayed an on status. Not sure if weather is related to the faulty cruise control but it was a sunny day, ~74 degrees.
