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.

Impala LS 3800

This is ridiculous how the 2001 Chev. Impala is so raggedy and GM does not want to help. GM SHOULD BE ASHAMED!! My steering has a whining sound when just parked and running. If it's being turned to the left or right it is annoying. GM QUIT HIDING AND FIX THE 2001 IMPALA.

Impala V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles

Whining sound & slight grabbing when turning appears more when the car is cold, and sometimes the whining sound happens when going straight (without turning). The power steering fluid reserve is full and not leaking. Any suggestions?
