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.

  • 126,000 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Chevrolet Malibu. The contact stated that she would refuel the fuel tank to capacity and the fuel gauge would provide an inaccurate reading of empty. The fuel gauge would chime and the check engine light would illuminate on the instrument panel when the failure occurred. The contact took the vehicle for inspection by a mechanic and was awaiting diagnosis. The manufacturer was notified and informed the contact that there were no recalls for the vehicle and provided no further assistance. The failure mileage was 126,000.

I was at a stop sign went to press gas pedal to turn onto road and the car just shut off no warning lights came on nor did it show any codes. Got out of car popped trunk pulled relay fuse out put it back in and it cranked up, then on my way home from work, going about 25 mph and it just shut down again, I repeated pulling out relay fuse and put it back in then waited a minute then it cranked and I drove straight home.
