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.

  • 700 miles


The contact owns a 2010 Chevrolet Malibu. While driving approximately 35 mph, there was an abnormal grinding coming from the brakes when depressed. The contact also stated there was an increase in stopping distance. The dealer replaced the brake pads. The failure persisted. The vehicle was taken to the dealer four times where the brakes pads were continuously replaced but to no avail. In addition, there was an unusual clicking coming from the front passenger side of the vehicle. The dealer replaced the front axle yet the failure persisted in the front driver side of the vehicle. When applying the brake, there was a loud roar coming from the vehicle and when activating the air conditioning unit, the contact observed anti-freeze expelling from the interior vents. The air bag warning light was also illuminated. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 700 and the current mileage was 7,600.
