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 V6

I noticed that my son's tail light was out. When he replaced the bulb, we noticed that there was significant moisture inside the housing. Two months later, my son was stopped by the police, and was told that the same rear tail light was out. When he got home, we looked at it and discovered that it was full of moisture again, even though there was no discernible crack in the housing.

It was towed to the local Chevy service department due to a problem with the ignition. I asked them to take a look at the light problem while it was there. I am awaiting a call on the solution and cost for this problem.
