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.

2005 Chevrolet Malibu Owner Comments

problem #2

I have a Chevrolet Malibu 2005, the sidewalls of the tires are cracking and I need to replace them. I have only had my vehicle for a year and a half. I have always kept up my services and tire rotations. I have another vehicle 2005 with different tires and never had any problems. My front passenger tire blew out due to the sidewall cracking. I now have to replace all four tires. Due to this problem. I shouldn't have to pay for them, they should be replaced at manufacturer's expense due to all the damages I have recently read up on this problem.
