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.

I currently have several mechanical issues with my 2005 Chevy Malibu as described in the NHTSA and manufacturer's recall numbers: NHTSA #09E012000; NHTSA #14V224000; NHTSA #11E009000; 10032206; 10019020; 10030685; and 10059101. The problems with the vehicle exist whether the car is stationary or in motion, however, they are most noticeable when driving.

As I was turning the corner the tire and rim completed disengaged or fell off causing me to make an emergency stop into a parking lot. The bolts had sheared off from the tire. We had the vehicle towed to a mechanics shop and found out the rod, rim, rotor and brakes were going to have to be replaced. The tire and rim had fell off before but we replaced the bolts which had sheared off.

The consumer rented a vehicle from alamo rental in orlando, fl at the airport. The consumer stated that without warning he was just driving at 35 mph and the vehicle jerked to the left. He said the steering wheel was not turned and he lost control and almost flipped over in the median where it also dismounted the front passenger tire from the rim. The consumer said the rear passenger tire was inserted about 6 inches like it was turned in towards the vehicle. Alamo was called and they offered to fix a flat but the consumer wanted a different vehicle because of safety reasons. Manufacturer has not been contacted yet. Caller feel this is a factory defect.
