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 #1

Impala 3.4L

  • Automatic transmission

The wipers will go too far on the driver side of the windshield. If the wipers are turned on high speed they will inconsistently go so far as to fall off the edge. I believe the repair will require replacing the wiper motor transmission, but a temporary fix has been to install an 18" wiper instead of the 22'. Since the passenger wiper goes over 3/4 of the windshield the 18" blade cover the small area it can't and with it being shorter it doesn't go as far over the edge. The issue comes when driving high speed with heavy rain, the wiper will catch on the trim just to the side of the windshield.
