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 #2

Feb 242006

Impala 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 62,800 miles


The jack supplied with a 2004 chev Impala was used for the first time on asphalt surface on a less than 1% grade. While the vehicle was jacked up to replace a tire with no stress on the wheel or vehicle, the jack failed and dropped the vehicle to the ground. The jack bent and the center all thread screw also bent. The oem supplied equipment is inadequate to elevate the vehicle safely to replace a flat tire.

Impala 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 36,075 miles
While using manufacturer supplied scissors jack to raise 2004 Chevrolet Impala to change right front tire, jack folded over causing vehicle to drop to ground and roll back slightly. Vehicle was on smooth, clean, level concrete garage floor at the time. Scissors jack had come apart as a result and is no longer serviceable. It has been retained.
