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. Consumer states problems with gas gauge the consumer stated when she re-fueled the vehicle, the gas gauge reached approximately 3/4 full, the fuel gauge needle dropped to empty and the check engine light illuminated. The gas gauge continued to read empty and the engine light stayed on until three to four gallons of gas was used. The gauge would then begin to read the correct amount of gas in the tank and would continue to do so until the tank was filled again. The check engine light would remain on for several days until gas was put in the tank above 3/4 full. The consumer believed the fuel gauge lever sensor was poorly designed. Updated 06/19/12

The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Malibu. The fuel gauge inaccurately displays the amount of fuel present in the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to an independent on three separate occasions for the identical failures. The technician stated that he would have to drop the fuel tank to determine the cause of the failure. No repairs were made. The failure mileage was 59,000. The current mileage was 84,000. The vehicle identification number was unavailable.
