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.

Malibu Classic 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles
The contact owns a 2004 Chevrolet Malibu classic. Within the past year, the vehicle has been experiencing electrical failure with the windows. The windows work at random and, occasionally, rise very slowly as if the motor is not working properly. The vehicle is also experiencing issues with the turn signals. Most of the time they do not work at all, but other times the signals work for a brief period of time. The manufacturer stated that the vehicle was out of warranty and they were not responsible for the failure. The contact believes the issue is due to a manufacturer defect and should be their responsibility to repair. The dealer would not assist. The VIN was unknown. The failure mileage was 70,000 and current mileage was 82,000. Updated 5/7/09 updated 05/12/09
