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.

Have been experiencing strong odors of gasoline over the past several weeks. Gas mileage has been impacted. Have called dealer several times - no return phone call. Assume when they do call me back, I am in for a $1,000 repair bill based on previous submissions. I would guess this should be another recall item based on the number of complaints I have read.

Malibu Maxx 6-cyl

I bought this car November 02, 2011 drove it home. The very next day I notice the cranking issues. The car will crank right up of the mornings, but after it warms up it could take up to 5 times. The car will shake and die. So I have no warranty for this car I bought used. So it's like I am stuck with it until it's paid for. So I google information about this car for any recalls and have been trying to find out if the fuel pump has or not been replaced for this car. My mechanic tells me it is my fuel pump. The recall was February 28, 2011, I feel this car was missed. This is the very first Chevrolet that I have bought, but trying to crank this car is just crazy. I get so fustrated this is a poor quality of a car. Everytime I take it to have anything done to it. I want to crawl under the table, cause I have to explain to them that I have a retard of a car. Can someone help me please.
