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 V6

Turns out every time the check engine light came on because of one of the cooling fans they just replaced the fuse.....and wouldn't you know it a couple months after I buy the car the check engine light comes on. The heat works ok with one working fan but the A/C is pitiful! The part might not be expensive but the labor to get to it is where your money will go!

While driving normally, SES light came on, the car began to overheat fairly significantly, and I took it to Chevrolet, They replaced the fan, and engine light went away, car still overheated, but the fans were working.
