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

Oct 112007

Malibu LS 3.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 23,612 miles


Asides the main seal the transmission is now leaking from the driver side; i can't believe that a car can have so many leaks at 36000 km cost only 300$. The engine is over cranking and according to GM it requires a computer upgrade and induction work cost 400$. And did i forget that the vehicle has only been out of warranty for 4 months and the dealership and GM refused to offer any assistance. What a shame that GM can't build a eal car anymore...i guess all they can build is wanna be HONDA ACCORDS and they are failing at that too.
