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.

2014 Chevrolet Malibu Owner Comments

problem #2

Apr 102015


  • 23,000 miles


Upon entering vehicle and starting up to go to work, the heating and ventilation system did not work, turned car on and off multiple times and still would not work. Drove car to work and the heat was stuck on high and the vents were untouchable due to not being able to operate heat/air or any other buttons on the system for that. Started raining on the way and had to use wipers and put windows up and windows started to fog and unable to clear them due to this reason also, will try to take in to the dealership in the morning and hope they can fix this problem. This is about the 3rd time since I had the car that it has done this, but the other 2 times it was only for a shorter time than this.

problem #1

Oct 202014

Malibu 4WD 4-cyl

  • 9,694 miles
When the vehicle was started, the HVAC fan control was not functional. The power indicator light was not illuminated and there was no blowing regardless of where the knob was positioned. This prevented the defrost function to engage, and as a result there was poor visibility through the windshield. I turned off the vehicle and restarted it, and the HVAC fan would still not function. I checked the fuse box, and the fuse was not blown. Later in the day, I started the car the next day and the fan was working properly. This issue has occurred multiple times over the past few weeks. I took my vehicle to a dealership and they were unable to determine the cause of the problem. This Malibu does fall into the production dates of the Nov 2013 visibility recall.
