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.

Impala 3.4L V6

Mileage the first time was 18368 when I took it back to the dealer Han Graff Chev Durand Michigan. Findings were "All four rotors had lateral runout beyond specs"

They resurfaced front and rear rotors.

Mileage second time was 31038 and again I took it back to the dealer Han Graff Chevrolet Durand Michigan. Without even looking at it I was told that they would have to resurface or replace the rotors and questioned me if I was a 2 foot driver. Always blame the consumer--that was smart.

I took it to a reputable garage in my area and guess what again they had to resurface the front & rear rotors.

I wrote to GM's CEO Wagoner documenting all the facts and received a call from a young lady who told me "THINGS WEAR OUT" No wonder GM is no longer the leader of the pack.
