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.

okay I've owned two impala's an '01 and a '00 and both had/have a problem with the rotors... they warp easily! on my first impala the '00 i replaced the original rotors with brand new sport rotors costing me $500.00 for the set and within a couple of months they were severely warped AGAIN! i don't brake hard... i make sure of it because i know that it will contribute to warping... anyway...i sold that car for my '01 and this car does the same thing... does anyone have an idea on how to fix this problem?
