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 #4

Impala LS V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 97,000 miles


This is terrible , as of today this has happened 5 times in the 6 months I have had this car. It looked like brand new when I bought it. It seems to run good. It scares me to death. My average time driving home is about 4 in the morning. Scarrrrry thing for a woman alone to maybe be sitting beside the road or wrecked somewhere because the lights just quit working.. Someone help.. where do I check to see if there is a re-call on this problem.

2002 Chevy Impala headlights went out suddenly on a dark mountain road with very few turnouts to pull off. After we got the car off the road the lights came back on again and thankfully stayed on the rest of trip out of the dangerous mountain roads. There was no reason the lights should have gone out. I am just thankful that we were not hit by another car while we tried to find a pull out. What makes me so mad is that my 2 babies were in the car with us when this happened.
