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.

Impala 3.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 126,000 miles

I have a 2000 Chevrolet Impala with this HORRIBLE 3.4L engine that has caused me nothing but problems since just a few months after purchasing the car. I had not idea that there were so many other people with this same blown head gasket. All the mechanics I have taken it to say its an engine problem that would be more expensive to fix than it would be worth. I would love to just get a new f*cking engine altogether because this P.O.S. does nothing but leak and cause "HOT COOLANT TEMPERATURE", "SERVICE ENGINE" AND EVERY OTHER NOTIFICATION LIGHT TO COME ON AND STAY ON FOR MONTHS NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO.

Impala 3.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 149,000 miles

I bought this car in 2005 with 96,000 miles on it. It had a weak transmission then, I found out after having it for a few weeks. It has always started, but since I have had it I have had to replace both front bearings, fix warped rotors (and been through 2 sets of brakes all the way around, and 2 sets of tires too!). Replaced wiper linkage because it stripped out. Oh and watch out for that plastic molding along the bottom! It likes to support body rot!
