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.

While driving the A/C stopped blowing cold air, the car started to overheat, the various lights on dash were lighting up and the car died at an intersection. The car has 40,148 miles; the air conditioning compressor froze snapping the serpentine belt. Per the repair invoice: Locked up compressor clutch 3.00 diagnose, replace A/C compressor, evacuate and charge A/C, replace serpentine belt, clean A/C filter. The total cost of this repair was $1169.35. Should this part cease to work at only 40,000 miles?

I just found out last night that my 2006 Chevy Malibu ltz brake lights illuminate without pressing the brake pedal and when I do press the pedal it goes out. This would cause anyone following my vehicle not to see that I am braking and could cause a crash. Also my cruise control and my cigarette lighter went out. I am not sure if they are all connected somehow but the brakes are definitely a concern. I will say that my car does have a salvaged title but I don't know if that would cause the safety issue. I have owned the car for 4 months and they have worked until now. I have an appointment to get it fixed and am not driving it till than.
