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.

transmission needs to be replaced - costs too much, my mechanic recommended just driving it until it goes.

Impala Sedan 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 125,000 miles

We have had problems with this car for the past year, first we took it to a dealership and they kept it over night and put it on a machine and at first did not find anything. Then told me it was a full pump that was going bad and I had it replaced. Then I had fuel filter replaced along with new spark plugs and wires. Now I am told it has a bad transmission, so I am lost now in what to think and what hurt me so is this is a GM product and I am a

GM employee. It started out by not starting when you put gas in it and after replacing pump , then it started all this jerking and hesitation when changing gears from stoppage at red lights and all this has become a pain in my ass. Thinking I have spent all this money and not sure what the main problem is still.
