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 #2

Impala 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 25,805 miles


Consumer states: Body control module failure. When trying to start it's like a dead battery, no noise like someone took the starter off. Have some lights come on but not all.

Impala 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 58,000 miles
1. within this past month, am noticing tremendous power loss and shifting/timing issues with the transmisson when accelerating to higher gear.. potential consequence would be insufficient power to accelerate out of the way of oncoming traffic. 3. have investigated and seen numerous complaints online concerning a shift solenoid that is a very troublesome issue with a lot of GM owners. Typical parts cost and labor for this problem runs in the $400 ballpark.
