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.

  • 45,000 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Chevrolet Malibu. The contact stated that the power windows, locks, linkages, and ignition switch sporadically become inoperative. She took the vehicle to the dealer and they replaced the ignition switch at the cost of $495. The manufacturer stated that they would not assume responsibility for any repairs because the vehicle exceeded its mileage. All remedies as of March 31, 2009 have been insufficient in correcting the failures. The failure mileage was 45,000 and current mileage was 51,000.
