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.

Malibu 4-cyl

The fuel gauge erratically jumps from full to empty and back to full. It does not properly display the fuel level. It is also causing an issue with emissions and the engine light. This has continued for over a year.

Initially sometimes my car would crank up then die out seconds later now its happening quite often and most times won't crank up now. This has caused me to be late and docked from work. I've brought the car in 5 to 6 times the last time in 2/2009 they said they put in a new fuel pump cylinder but two days later I'd the same problem again.
