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.

2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx Owner Comments

Malibu Maxx

  • 240,508 miles


On 12/16/14 I purchased a set of 4 new 215/60R/16 95T Goodyear viva2 tires from louisville walmart supercenter 175 outer loop louisville, ky 40214 for a 2005 Chevrolet Malibu maxx. On 05/19/2015, with appropriately 1500 miles on the tires. While driving at 50 mph the right rear tire failed due to sidewall separation. Due to low speed and light traffic there was no accident, at highway speed this would not have been the case. No damage to the tire other than sidewall separation was noted by walmart service technician. I was not told until later that the tire was replaced by a Goodyear 215/60R/16 95T viva 3 with a different treed pattern(I do not feel this is safe) due to Goodyear no longer making the viva 2 due to problems with the tire.
