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.

Ignition key issue in my 2005 Chevy classic Malibu when the car is on in the run position when the car is in drive and park the key can come out by taking it out and the car is still running. The key is also loose it tends to fall out of the ignition and the car is still running. The car shift gear for park and drive and neutral when you pull it back it gets stuck all the time sometimes I able to move it forward and backwards without having to press the button. The car also shakes during high winds it goes left and right from high winds.

On going problem. When I take my foot off the gas it maintains the speed and the cruise control is off. I have to brake several times to get it to slow down and when I'm fully braked the engine seems to be racing. By the time I get to repair service it has straighten out and since it isn't doing it they can't find the problem.
