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 Maxx

  • 158,000 miles


I brought our 2006 Malibu maxx in for a 5000 mile tire balance and rotation.. I was informed that I had two more bent rims on the car.. this after replacing two already several years back.. I was informed by the tire tech that this is an ongoing problem with Chevy rims and that they are seeing this soft rim problem on a regular basis.. this can get expensive quick and I would like to know if and when a recall will be initiated? soft rims can cause complete tire failure and blowouts without warning and at highway speeds can be catastrophic...

Malibu Maxx 6-cyl

  • 69,000 miles
Last November, 2013, I was driving my 2006 Chevrolet Malibu maxx lt on simsbury rd. In avon, ct when I experienced a very dangerous loss of power steering and the electrical system. Causing my front right tire to blow out. This made mycar to swerve and veer into oncoming traffic. T I was at risk of being hit by other cars. While waiting for roadside assist I was helped by the ct dot and avon pd. This was a harrowing, dangerous, and stressful experience for me. I would like Chevrolet to cover all of the repair expenses related to this accident and all problems & repairs that followed since this is directly related to the power steering& electrical system recalls from GM Chevrolet. They did not notify me directly about the power steering& electrical system recalls. I found out only this week August 10, 2014 after I called this with regards two additional recall notices I received of late regarding faulty transmission and brakes. They do not have parts or an expected date for repairs and have refused my request for a replacement vehicle in any form. I have spoken at length to their customer relations director as well as all three of the Chevrolet dealerships I have used for service and purchase; oneill Chevrolet, avon, ct, gengras Chevrolet, East hartford, ct and carter Chevrolet in manchester, ct, where I purchased the vehicle. None of them are willing to arrange a temporary replacement vehicle and have no further information on a date for repairs or parts availability. This is outrageous and unacceptable. Please advise Consumer Affairs and me as to how I should proceed. I am a disabled american and have no other transportation options other then my own car. Thank you.
