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.

I purchased my 2005 Chevy Malibu maxx ls as a "program car" thinking it was the next best thing to a new car. I guess I was wrong. Since purchasing the vehicle in April 2006 I have had consistent trouble with my front end. I have had to take it to the dealer for warranty repairs four times! now at 50,500 miles my front end is acting up again. The last time I had my repairs done I was out of warranty and called gmac and asked for a repurchase. Gmac contacted my dealer and returned a call to me stating that I should try another dealer they could not get anywhere with my current dealer. I was not surprised after being told by the shop leader that"his wife's car did the same thing and that the best thing I could do is drive it till its paid for! I have had it with this car and the service my local dealer. I love gmac and I wish they would be more aggressive at dealing with bad dealerships. My dealership made me feel stupid and like I was bothering them. I am still paying on my Malibu but am looking to trade but I am so scared that I will just gain a whole new problem from another vehicle...what do I do?
