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

  • miles


When vehicles steering wheel is turned left or right it makes a loud clicking noise like its going to break. Does not allow accurate steering while driving. The driver rear windows electric suspension wire popped and came unraveled and window drops. Fuel level range sensor does not provide accurate reading. Also, disabled fuel gauge arm in dash (fluctuates). Diagnosis ran and seems to be no issue with fuel pump. While driving the arm bar that keeps seat level and in place snapped and seat fell as vehicle was in motion (70mph on freeway).. very scary.. since steering column already feels like its going to fall apart.

Fuel gauge is inaccurate resulting in engine code and inability to properly monitor fuel level. Potential for out of fuel stalls.
