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 #2

Malibu LS

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


The gear shift has to be adjusted everytime I turn the car off because if it is not in park fully I cannot remove the key. It is rather annoying I just am running out of money trying to repair this car. I have replaced the engine twice, the intake manifold system once before both engine replacements the fuel pump twice now and my mechanic told me the car is not even worth continuing to invest money in to keep it running. It is all I have but it has cost me a lot of money over the years

When putting the car in park, the shift lever needs to be jiggled to make sure it is in the locked position or the battery will run down.
