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

Feb 022007

Impala 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 95,000 miles


The contact owns a 2001 Chevrolet Impala. While the vehicle was parked in a paint shop, it spontaneously exploded. Although the contact was experiencing the same failure as noted in NHTSA campaign id number 96V116000 (fuel system, gasoline:fuel injection system), the dealer stated that the VIN was not included in the recall. The dealer stated that he would have to replace the cover intake manifold and the fuel injection system. The manufacturer was unable to assist. The failure and current mileages were 95,000.
