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.

Malibu 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 150 miles
When it rains the brakes will not grab and hold. Loud howling noise from the front brakes. The whole car shudders hard as if it will fall off of it's frame. Pads and rotors have been replaced four times in a year. Dealer won't check anything else and says GM won't authorize the warranty work!
