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 #1

Apr 032008

Impala 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 98,000 miles

at 98,000 miles vehicle shuttered under breaking at speeds 50mph or thereabouts. after many shops with their heads up their asses couldnt figure it out. i saw that some in here used aftermarket rotors and the prob was fixed. this is indeed the issue. chev uses lousy rotors and they warp under normal braking. do not have the rotors replaced by a shop because they will use oem rotors. this will only be a temp fix and in 10000 or less miles the prob will be back again. its brakes people. do them urself. its easy job, i just did mine at 128000 miles. prob gone.
