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 I love my 2002 Chevrolet Impala it has two major problems which affect its safety. First, I hd replaced the windshield wiper blade assembly twice in 1.5 years and the linkage had been reset two separate times. The windshield wipers stayed in an upright position, blocking the view from the windshield. The second problem was the rear brakes, which deteriorated and crusted, requiring full replacement of the brake pads, rotors, etc. This could cause brake failure if no action was taken by the owner and a responsible mechanic. The most recent failure date of the windshield wiperswas listed below. The brakes were fully replaced in March 2007.
