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.

I have bought this Chevrolet Malibu 2008 brand new car two months ago. When I bought it I drove the car and I asked the customer representative if there is something on the windshield. The rep. From dean myers said is nothing and it gets off when is detailed. Is unsafe to drive like that as I can not see clear through all the windshields so I got the car in for inspection. They said is not their fault and called a GM representative. They said is not their fault as well. At the end they advised me to get in touch with my insurance as it could have been an "acid rain or something". the car was like this when I bought it and I bought lifetime warranty for inside outside. This is a ridiculous resolution for my problem. I didn't noticed though this problem got worst when they rust proof it. Do not buy from dean mayers car dealer from toronto!!!

Modern vehicles are built with the sun visor built into the ceiling of the vehicle to avoid "scalping" the occupants during a crash. However, on my 2008 Chevy Malibu ltz, the visor is not built into the ceiling and has the ability to "scalp" someone when they are involved in a traffic crash. This appears to be a design defect on this new model.
