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.

problem #2

Malibu Maxx 6-cyl

  • 44,000 miles


From about 35000 miles, the air bag light was on from time to time. Under the 3years/36000miles warranty, dealer just rezeroed the passenger presence system. But it can not prevent the air bag light from being on again occasionally. At about 44000 miles, the air bag light was always on. This time the same dealer (jake sweeney Chevrolet) asked for a total replacement of the passenger presence module for $632. I think the air bag problem is a common problem for 07 Malibu maxx.

Air bag presence module requires replacement estimated cost $582. Vehicle mileage 36,522 in/36,524 out from dealership 3/5 August 2010. Airbag goes out of service with passenger in seat and buckled. Warranty 36,000 Chevy extended warranty does not cover airbags system. 524 miles out of warranty. Told should have had foresight to tell the part was going to go out prior to warranty expiration like I did for the dash rattles (fixed again on 5 Aug 2010). Contact Chevy stated via telephone (lee) I would be contacted within 24 hours regarding if they would pay for repair. I have not been contacted directly except for an email from (lady) stating we are forwarding you concern. The dealer (wilkerson Chevy, 1301 douglas drive, po box 1088, sanford, nc 27331-1088, (919) 775-3421). I believe the dealer service representative (Ms. Shelly nichols) has done everything it can do without Chevy's repair authorization. Request your assistance in resolving this repair issue. With this vital part of the safe system out of service it renders the atleast the passenger seat unsafe (1) as a passenger and (2) as an emergency responder potentially the air bag may not deploy in the event of front end collision however, it may arm. There by creating a second hazard.
