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.

2004 Chevrolet Impala Owner Comments

problem #1

HVAC system in the 2004 Impala has a problem. The ac compreser runs in the heat only mode at temps as low as 30 degrees. This causes the inside windows to fog up on the inside and if the vech is left parked outside all the windows will fog up. The only way to keep all windows clean is to open one of the windows a little and run defrost with at least half speed. If you do not do this the front and side windows fog up and it is very hard to cleat the side windows. This problem is causing my gas mileage to go down and making it hard to drive when it is cold out. Dealer said it is ok. The manual says the ac sould only run above 40 and only in defrost or demist modes.
