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

Purchased a second Chevrolet Impala with same defect with tail light compartment. Holds water indefinitely, not just condensation. I now have a 2003 and used to have a 2002 with same problem. Causes light bulbs to go out frequently and also alarm will go off when opening trunk which I suspect maybe a short in wiring due to water. I have contacted a local Chevrolet dealer's service dept as well as GM corporate and they are familiar with problem but no with no recalls yet to provide resolution of what I believe is a safey hazard when light bulbs continue to go out. Of course they want me to pay to replace defective taillight assembly that may still have some condensation problems.
