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.

2004 Chevrolet Malibu Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 012008

Malibu LS V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 39,000 miles


The spring on the gear shift cracked, therefore the car would not go into park, stuck in drive. So I put the emergency brake on and turned it off. Well, it would not start since it wasn't in park. I was at a mall doing Christmas shopping on a Sunday and had to have the car towed to my house, then the following day it was towed to the dealer. This car is the biggest piece of JUNK I ever owned!! This was my first GM and it is my last GM!! DO NOT BUY THIS CAR!!!!
