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

Dec 012006

Impala 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 31,000 miles


: the contact stated there was a strong smell of gasoline in the cab. The vehicle was taken to the service dealer, who determined that the fuel line and the connector from the gas tank were defective. The fuel hose at the rail would not seal at the fitting form which caused raw fuel to leak onto the engine. Updated 01/10/07.

Impala 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 89,400 miles
I have a 2002 Chevy Impala, and the car has 89000 miles on it. The gas line that goes to the engine has a hole in it and gas is leaking onto the engine. The leak is from a steel line that was rubbed through by the holder.
