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.

2003 Chevrolet Malibu Owner Comments

problem #1

Malibu LS V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 66,000 miles


This happened about in the first month after picking the brand new car from the dealership. The front passenger speaker blew out. After about 3 trips to the dealer, they insisted that nothing was wrong. Finally I got smart and put all the volume and balance into that one speaker so the service guy could hear all the static for himself. He turns to me and says, "your speaker is busted." I was like no sh*t sherlock, thats what i was trying to tell you the last 3 times i was here but you refused to acknowledge the problem. They finally fixed it for free as the car was under warranty, but they had no courtesy car available and I had to miss a day of work b/c of it. no wonder people buy japanese cars.
