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.

Hot air wouldn't blow out of vents when temp knob was turned. Could usually hear a click noise when doing so, but not any more. My husband had to take the dash apart & fixed it somehow. The blend door wasn't moving.

Malibu 3.5L 6cyl

The blowers on this car just stop working in all of the settings except for 4, so I have to have the heat on full blast or the AC the same way.

All of a sudden one day I was using my AC and it quit. I realized it was just the first 2 settings. So when I want to use it I have to have it blasting on us. Few months later I found out that it was also the heater that wasn't working right either. I'm constantly having to turn it on and off again. It gets really annoying and pisses me off.

I bought a Chevy Malibu It runs well but it has different things that go wrong like the heater doesn't work, power steering Light keeps going on, Its great on Gas runs great but I think there might be a computer problem or perhaps could the battery of the vehicle be going
