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

The intermediate drive shaft needs to be replaced. It stated making noises when the steering wheel was turned. Took for service the part was ordered on Nov 3 2004. Part still has not came in. Called the Chevy dealer. Seems like its been a common problem. And takes about 2 months to get the part. I was told only 6,000 are made a week and they started in the hole 100,000 and the problem is getting worse. If that many people are having the same problem, why are they not recalling the part. I asked the man if my car is safe to drive he said isn't is under warranty. I said no and all of a sudden the car was safe to drive. It does not feel safe and I am not at all confident about driving and I think Chevy should admit they have a problem.
