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

A lady ran a red light and T-boned my Chevy Malibu on the drivers side as I was proceeding through the intersection. Airbags did not deploy. My head slammed in to the drivers side window. Drivers side door was smashed in. The car had to be towed because it couldn't be driven. I have a concussion that's lasted for 2 weeks and body pain from the accident. Shouldn't the airbags have deployed?

Stabilitrak« stability control system, anti lock brakes and wheel bearing. 2nd time I have had these lights come on, driving and tracking control kicked in and then the lights all appear. I paid to have it fixed, and they spliced into the wire, not covered under warranty according to care. Yet it is part of wiring harness.

The wheel bearings are going out with less than 40K miles on it and it is a well documented and regularly occurring problem. On the Malibu forum there are over 7 pages of people stating that they have had to replace the wheel bearings with as few as 19K miles on them. I am a few thousand miles outside of my warranty so I have to pay for the repair out of my own pocket but I think its ridiculous that oem parts, that the GM service managers admit are faulty, have to be paid for by the consumer. If my wheel bearing failed I could have lost control of the vehicle and put my whole family at risk of serious injury or death.
