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.

problem #2

Impala 3.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 74,000 miles


I have had misery out of this car for 8 years. The coolant system is a piece of crap. My husband has replaced the radiator, water pump, flushed the car and 6 thermostats in the car. It will run for a short time and the problem returns. I hate this car and it has turned me against any GM completely. I will never again in my life buy a Chevrolet. We also had to replace the top end of the engine with only 72,000 miles. I know now how Chevy got it's name. Cheep Heap Every Valves Rattles Oil Leaks Every Time. I am getting rid of this piece of crap and going to buy a Ford or Dodge. Thanks for nothing GM!

This car has been nothing but problems. The BCM controls all kinds of stuff on this car, for instance the AC was blowing hot air. It is obviously faulty, reading the problems about it. Sad thing that Government Motors doesn't feel the need to deal with lemon cars. It was garage kept with hardly wear and tear. This makes me sick.
