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 #2

May 182011

Malibu LT 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 113,428 miles


I see someone else had problem with the sun visor breaking. My driver side visor broke. There are 2 problems here. First of all the mirror is always exposed and when you have the visor down you see yourself or there is glare. Plus, the visor light does not work anymore.

I did a comparison to the other visor and I agree it was a cheap, small plastic piece that held the cover on. Oh and Chevy can fix for $85.00.

The passenger sun visor cover broke off. No wonder - the little plastic point which holds it on is hardly a sixteenth of an inch in diameter. The dealer replaced it but how long with the new one last? Probably not long.
