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.

2003 Chevrolet Impala Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 172008

Impala 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


One day, in the middle of the summer, the A/C stopped working and the cruise kicked off. During this time, none of the climate control features would work and the cruise was inoperative as well. In about ten minutes, the A/C kicked back on just like normal, but there was a delay in the cruise operations, and would not work for another five minutes. Several months later, this problem is still occurring on an intermittent basis.

The biggest problem is when its either 101 or -2 outside and your A/C or heat will not work for the first ten to twenty minutes of your ride. The cruise control going off simultaneously gets annoying, especially on long trips.

This problem often occurs at start up, but can and does happen in the middle of your trip as well.

I have not had this problem fixed or diagnosed yet, but I suspect it is a problem with the cars computer-there are no blown fuses.
