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

Jun 182007

(reported on)

Impala 3.4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 61,968 miles


lift up the hood on a Sunday to put coolant on the tank and noticed that there was a puddle of oil sitting on top of the engine and a hose on top of the engine was loose, and looked worn out. I took it to the dealership and the guy said that was a problem and I need to get it back so they can look at it and tell me where the leak was coming from. The car is only two in a half years old. This is a piece of f*cking sh*t I have ever owned. I still owe a little over 8 thousand on it. This f*cked up sh*t I will never buy another Impala eva again. I have hate thsi DAM CAR nothing but one problem after another I previously owned a Malibu and i have never had any problems out of none at all. The only problem i had was the theft system kept locking up the starter, that is the only problem. But this sh*t first it was the transmission, the brakes, the climate control lights has gone out on the dash, the radio wont eject cds right, and now the DAM engine. I though GM was better when they built this car it is nice on the outside but looks are very deceiving , when u buy this piece if sh*t, and drive it for 2 years and sh*t starts happening to it, and malfunctioning, and falling off this LOAD OF CRAP. NO MORE IMPALAS EVA AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
