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 #2

Malibu 3.1L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


Horn blows for no reason on its own!! This car has its own mind!! It's embarrassing & annoying! Not sure how to even fix this. Car definitely has electrical issues, & its been this way from day one.. Horn blows, hazard lights only work when they want (even after replacing the switch/button) & they make a funny sound in the dash, sometimes turn signals give out, & there are issues with the lights!! Gotta love a Chevy!! Only wish I knew of this website before I bought it.. This car is a one owner & has been well maintained, so it's just JUNK!!!!!

My car horn sounds off when it wants too and there is some sort of "beep beep beep" that I hear every once in awhile. I have no idea what causes this to happen. I feel as if the car is possessed!
