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.

problem #1

Jan 012008

Malibu 2.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 16,000 miles

On my 2004 Malibu I noticed that the rear-view mirror was loose, though it would still stay in place. In looking at it closely, I noticed a crack in the plastic female portion of the pivot assembly. My local dealer, Courtesy Chevrolet of Kingsport, TN replaced the mirror assembly free of charge even though the calendar warranty had expired on the vehicle. (The mileage portion of the warranty had not yet expired.)
