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.

2001 Chevrolet Impala Owner Comments

problem #2

Feb 012012

Impala LS

  • Automatic transmission
  • 42,000 miles


My 2001 Impala's rear passenger door lock quit working and when I told the dealership about it they commented that it is a common problem but not covered by any type of warranty. Suggested I go to a junk yard and get parts and find someone reasonable to fix it. They wanted $450.00 to replace it plus labor. I found the part I needed for $75.00 and a mechanic to put it in for $80.00 It would be nice if GM would stand behind its products or at least the dealership themselves.

I had also told the dealership that my young grand daughter sat on that side and if I were ever in an accident where I could get her out I would be devastated, he said "well I guess $450.00 don't sound so bad then", what kind of service is that?
