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.

Unit has had continuing intermittent power steering. Very dangerous at times. Bulletin 14116 is suppose to cover 2004-2006 Malibu, but dealer says its not covered. How could a recall not be a recall? unit also has dangerous intermittent headlights. Bulbs fine, has defective sockets inside the integrated headlight assembly. Other gms have had this issues but no recalls on the Malibu.

I noticed that my passenger side tail lights were very dim in further investigation I learned my passenger side brake lights were not illuminating at all when I push my brake pedal and when the pedal is pushed the tail lights do not illuminate at all and the problem continues into my blinker, reversing indicator, etc.. also when I check my VIN it tells me there are no active recalls for my car.
