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.

2007 Chevrolet Malibu Owner Comments

That morning about 10:30 am, traffic was slowing during light rainy road conditions on interstate 70, westbound, in St. Charles, Missouri, when the driver of the car in which I was the only passenger, applied his brakes to slow down and slid into the back of the car in front of us, colliding the front end of the Malibu into the rear end of the Mazda sedan in front of us, twice impacting the Mazda sedan, totaling the Chevrolet Malibu in which I was the passenger. At no time did any air bags in the Malibu deploy. I suffered a torn meniscus in my left knee which remains scarred and periodically painful. The two passengers in the Mazda may have been injured, as well. Medical attention was required but not at the accident scene. A Missouri highway patrol officer was dispatched to the scene. Both vehicles were towed.

Steering shaft failure - power steering motor failure steering box replaced gas gauge sensor replaced struts replaced passenger door won't seal I have hated this car almost from the moment I bought it. So many things wrong with it. 2007 car shouldn't have all these problems. 1989 Blazer still going and has none of this crap.
