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.

When we purchased the Malibu ltz V6 fully loaded, leather seats all the upgraded options I thought I was getting a "excellent" car. I was delusional ! within a couple of months I had a problem with my radio, and components in the radio saying" aux input device" and it kept turning on and off ! I called Chevrolet in green cove springs Florida and asked them about it and they said it was "nothing" it wasn't nothing ! I was told of course "after my warranty expired" that it was the electrical system! and that I would have to pay more then $3,000 to fix it! nice GM! because the electrical system is wired into the radio so when they radio has a problem guess what ladies and gentlemen ? everything goes to hell ! also my motors on all my doors have failed at least once and now because my electrical system is going my doors open and close when they want to ! I was driving on highway at 70 miles and hour and all of a sudden my car started to slow down as if I had no power again they said nothing was wrong ! this is my first Chevrolet and my last ! I am trading this garbage in for a foreign car ! probably a Fiat ! thank you ! GM should be ashamed of themselves we the american people bailed them out and they have china who btw hates us ! making parts for our cars ! omg I just love this country !
