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 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


I have had serious brake wearing issue, in one years time a total of 40,000 mi I used 3 sets of brakes pads for this car.I had have brake calipers changes, in front (loaded) and rear wheel cylinders, (2), and new drums for rear brakes. Brake continued to be a problem and have had completely bleed the system at Chevrolet dealer. Now I have turn signal problems. They work when they want to. Due to my busy work schedule I have been unable to have repair done. Chevrolet repair hours are limited. My commute is long over 60 miles one way. It is often very difficult due to turn signal failure at critical moments.
