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

  • Automatic transmission

: the contact stated there was a loud knocking noise when the transmission was shifted into drive. All other gears were smooth and quiet. Three separate service dealers had inspected the vehicle and were aware of the knocking sound, but informed the contact the noise was common with the vehicle and would diminish with time. Computer diagnostics found nothing wrong. The manufacturer was notified. The consumer complained of a vibration when the brakes were applied. The dealer resurfaced the rotors. Updated 12/01/06
