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.

2002 Chevrolet Impala Owner Comments

problem #2

Impala LS V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles


I will never again buy a Chevy vehicle. I have had nothing but problems with this car. First the security light came on and I was unable to start my car. Cost me $850.00 to fix it. To this day sometimes it still will not start and I have to mess with the lock/unlock key. Second there was something wrong with a gasoline line. I started smelling gas while I was driving. Dealership told me any longer driving your car and it would have blown up. Next thing something with the exhaust. Now having problems with the A/C. Drivers side the air is hot and passenger side the air blows cool. Chevy does not do a thing about any of these problems. Again I will never ever give my business to Chevy.

When you turn on the A/C and slide both the driver's and passengers controls to cold, it blows out cold air on the driver's side and HOT air on the passenger's side. If you bump the passenger control up one click, it switches to cool air, but still warmer that the drivers side.
