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.

I bought 4 douglas touring tires for my 2001 Impala ON11/03/05 about 13,000 miles later my right front tire started to thump and shake. I had it checked. It was a seperated belt. I had it replaced and the tires rotated new on the back old on the front a month later the right front tire did the same thing. I had it replaced, this time I was forced to pay a $54 pro rate. What happened to the wareentee of the life of the tire? now today the left front tire is doing the same thing. I can't affored to buy another one or two as the case may

We own a 2001 Chevrolet Impala, VIN # [xxx], that was purchased new. We have been experiencing this clunk noise. The vehicle was taken in for repair, we were then advised it was the tires so we replaced the tires. This did not correct the issue. We took the vehicle back for repair and the left tie rod was replaced, this did not correct the issue. I have found that many other owners with this problem have been told it was their tires and also have had tie rods replaced. I searched the internet and found the subject tsb. I took the vehicle in for the repair called for in the tsb, lubrication of the steering intermediate shaft using lubrication kit # [xxx]. this repair lasted about 30 days. I have been advised that this is normal and since I have 38000 miles on my vehicle no coverage from Chevrolet is available. This defect has been known to Chevrolet since before July of 2002 when the tsb was issued. I feel that it is a safety issue involving the steering and Chevrolet should be responsible for correcting the issue at no cost to me.
