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.

2016 Chevrolet Malibu Owner Comments

I have audio (hearing) of five warming bells for last couple of weeks while traveling in vehicle. I finally observed in ceiling of vehicle air bag warning for passenger seat indicating 'on 2' I observe audio of five bells every now and then while on road. I then observe 'on 2' indicator goes into off mode automatically. I do not know exactly when airbag passenger system reverts to off mode. I will take vehicle into authorized chev service center sometime this week as I am in warranty. I am not aware of any recall notice and vehicle has been in chev service center for oil change, tire rotation and vehicle safety check list about 30 days prior. I would hope their computer system is up to date on recalls. Also I am not aware if air bags are takema air bags?
