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.

2012 Chevrolet Malibu Owner Comments

Malibu 4-cyl

The plastic-covered lug nuts on my 2012 Chevrolet Malibu do not stay tight against the wheels. The oem lug nuts vibrate loose and need to be checked periodically (I.e., monthly). Loose lug nuts are a significant safety hazard. I was unable to obtain replacement all-metal lug nuts for this vehicle from a Chevrolet dealership. I suggest that Chevrolet replace the plastic-covered lug nuts with all-metal lug nuts at no cost to the customers.
