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 #3

Impala LS 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 255,000 miles


Keys didn't work in my ignition anymore. You had to jingle it and jingle it and jingle it. I felt like I was in a damn Christmas carol everyday! Guess the key might've just wore down so I went to GM and got a new one. $25 without your code, is what I paid. New keys still gave me a little bit of resistance but after 2 tries or simply reinserting It would turn. Better than the 2-20 minutes I would spend before trying to leave a parking lot. Oh and the sore fingers and key marks left on my hands also were pretty great to not have anymore.
