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 #1

While driving down the road the right passenger side mirror exploded - sounded like a gunshot. I was told something hit the mirror causing it to explode. This was based on the mirror casing having scratches on the top. I have never heard of a mirror exploding - for any reason - and neither has anyone else I have spoken to, including the dealership that is fixing my vehicle. Problem was reported to Chevrolet but they did not seem concerned about the safety issue. My niece was sitting in the front seat at the time and, fortunately, did not have the window down - otherwise she would have been seriously injured.
