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 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 27,526 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Chevrolet Malibu. While driving 55 mph, the contact felt a vibration in the steering. The power steering warning light illuminated and the power steering failed a second later. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, but they were unable to duplicate the failure. The manufacturer was notified; however, they would not accept a trade-in because the dealer could not duplicate the failure. The current mileage was 27,536 and failure mileage was 27,526.
