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

  • 80,000 miles


I am the second owner of this car and an avid Chevrolet owner we only own Chevrolet vehicles. My car is white and the paint is coming off starting on the trunk. I have not seen an Impala like mine that the paint is not coming off. I used to brag about Chevrolet but now I cannot. I can't wash the car often because the paint rips away every time. I would not be making this complaint if mine was the only one I have seen with this issue. Chevrolet may not be my next choice when making an investment in another vehicle.
