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.

Malibu LS 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles


since june of 2006 ti have replaced the 4 gas cap 4 times causing the check engine light to come on emitting a code 422 i think also could be the reason for a code 455 as i recently replaced the 4th one on the car. cost should be between 12 and 20 dollars depending where you purchase it.

Malibu Maxx V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,000 miles

Gas cap cracked, but was surprisingly taken care of by dealership. Apparently the part is covered by an extended warranty due to known defects.
