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 #5

Impala V6

  • Automatic transmission

The horn assmbly got wet when I went through a puddle. (It rains A LOT in New Orleans!). The water stayed in the horn and made it stop working. New horn was installed with horn dish facing down instead of up so the water wouldn't sit in it and stop working again. Cost between $200 and $300 to get fixed. Have been a loyal Chevrolet customer for many years but if I ever even think of buying another one - please lock me up!

Impala LS 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles

This happened to me twice. The first time at 35000 miles. It was luckily still under warranty and Chevy replaced it for free. However, when it happened at 58,000 miles again, I was so fed up I did it myself with a replacement horn I found online. It was easy to fix, and my new horn is louder and better. If you end up replacing it yourself don't get the OEM one. They have some major design flaws with water getting stuck in the bottom of the horn.

I was told that there was water in the horn like it was my fault. I am glad to see someone else out there has had this problem.
