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

Bolt holding the hub in place just fell out last year on the front driver side tire. This occurred when I was driving home from a relatives house on a busy road. Luckily, no crash. Bolt was replaced with a brand new one. 1 month ago today, the same bolt on the front passenger side fell out. No reason, just plain fell out. Driving home from picking up my son after work, no crash occurred. This is a huge risk and I fear driving the vehicle at any time because I have had multiple problems, but cannot afford another vehicle. 2001 Chevrolet Impala 3.4L.

I have been having a right front wheel sensor problem with my 2001 Chevy Impala. I have had this replaced 3 times and they have lasted less than a month each time. The Chevrolet company has had no recall to finally solve the reason that it continues to go out. The problem affects my brakes and I have had close calls where my brakes grind and don't want to come to a complete stop when I need it to. I feel that this can ultimately be a dangerous issue as this is my main vehicle and I am on the interstate quite a bit. Thank you for your time.

2001 chevorlet/Impala purchased new, current miles 51,000. Intermittant loss of directionals. * complete loss of directionals and emergency signals. Failed recent car inspection. Additional failures include: Complete brake loss at 38,000. Resulting in replacement of entire brake system. Firestone tire, West roxbury, MA stated on documents that "rotors were thinned down to size of sheet of paper &/or completely gone." Two tire blowouts at 35,000, also replaced by above repair shop, with 4 new tires. Battery leak with corrosion to extent of need of connection cables to be rebuilt for attachment. Battery replaced with new connections at 40,000 by sears auto body in dedham, MA. Passengar side wiper fixed and replaced after failure. Worked for 3 months and has failed again, has not at present been replaced/repaired. Care of car was updated and maintained according to all requirements/recommendations by manufacturer. No history of accidents. This including, oil changes, wiper blade changes, tire rotations with evey other oil change, which was done every 3 monts, etc. Brake inspection and pads changed on car 1 year before complete failure. Brake loss was thankfully uneventful only due to time of night and low traffic, only able to stop car with gliding to stop. Then towed to service station. On average my present yearly milage is probably less than 3000. I am the only driver/operator to this car and althogh mentioned #1 owner, my father originally purchased the car, (howard chevorlet, West roxbury, MA) but did not drive it. I currently am the title holder. Please feel free to contact me anytime if you have any recommendations that could help me. I feel that there is major failure that beyond my control and is dangerous to myself, others and most important to me, my 4 Y/O daughter. Thank you for your time. I hope to hear from you (someone) soon. Teresa corrigan
