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.

Wha the fetch? How come a car with very low mileage driven by 2 people only to MD appointments can have this problem? We keep the oil changed when needed or recommended, we are not "speed racers" or young people driving recklessness (I have kids in their 20's and believe it or not, I was 20 once myself). I am a safe driver, not a ticket or an accident in my entire life of driving (I have been driving since I was 16 and I am now 53 years old). COME ON, FIX MY CAR and don't tell me to just check the steering fluid I am afraid I am going to die. American made cars use to be the best made in the world and now you take you life in your own hands. Someone please help 2 disabled people living on a very limited basis because we PAID OUR MEDICAL BILLS WHEN I WAS FIRST SICK AND NOW WE HAVE ALMOST NOTHING. We need this car so I can see my doctors. I now am really sick and need to see my doctors on a regular basis or I will get even sicker and will most likely die but who cares about an old lady from the midwest that always tried to do the right thing, gave when I could, and now this. My husband will die without me we need some suggestions.

Malibu

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles

we have had our car in so many times we know everyone names and they know us. of course we usually get something to drive and not the Malibu but it isn't worth the $100 dollar deductible we pay ever time and the inconvenience. We have been in several times with VEHICLE NOT STARTING TO THE EXTREME VIBRATION IN THE FRONT END
