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

Impala 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles


The battery on my 2001 Chevy Impala was dead, so I put a battery charger on the battery and when I went to start the car, nothing happened. I waited 2-4 minutes for the battery to charge and tried to start it again. As soon as I turned the key, the intake manifold exploded into about 10 pieces throughout my garage. Luckily no one was hurt. I had the car towed to the local GM dealership today and am still waiting to hear from them.

Consumer took vehicle in for recall #01V136000/ manufacturer's recall 01035 repairs. Consumer was not satisfied with the remedy of recall. Called dealer, and talked to service representative. The technician was advised that this remedy was the only one specified by the manufacturer and was properly completed by the dealer, the dealer did not install a brake master cylinder bracket that will maintain positioning of the fuel line in a frontal crash as promised in the recall.
