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.

I'm not sure if the locks got wet when it rained, but the locks began to go up and down while driving. It only happened a couple times back in the Summer, but it was very annoying.

Malibu 2.2L

On my 1004 Malibu, sometimes there will be a beeping noise from under the dash, and then the locks may go up and down intermittently, and then the CD player may stop playing altogether, and then the car won't respond to the key fob. I think the darn thing is alive, if you want to know the truth. When I took it to the dealer, of course, the car would not demonstrate the problems, so the dealer said they couldn't fix what they couldn't see as wrong. Well enough. So the very next time the car behaved in this way, I went through both fuse boxes and wiggled/secured all the fuses and relays. Problem solved, for about 6,000 miles. Last night (March 10, 2008), the problem resurfaced. Again I went through the fuse panels. Seemingly, the problem is again solved. Who knows. My wife thinks it's cute, and that the car has personality. I say it's a spoiled brat which needs a paddling.
