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.

Dealer I bought the car from says the part (multifunction switch) is $760 to replace. That seems like a rather crazy price for a switch! Why does it break so easily? Why is it tied to everything else (probably reason for crazy price)!?

Why wouldn't GM consider this a safety issue? If your lights go off on a dark road wouldn't it be an accident waiting to happen, don't we consider that a safety issue. I guess that is what it will take for them to do something. This happens all the time, to many times to add a report for each time.

the dealer said he has replaced many of these in Impalas. Why won't GM do something about this. Do a recall. It is a matter of safety on the road.

So another problem with my 2004 Impala to go along with my no speedometer, tachometer and temperature gauge...I'm driving along on a very dark, winding road and decide I need my high beams to see. Then all of a sudden...BAM, I have NO headlights at all! I flick the high beams off and to my surprise, my lights come back on! It's amazing how many electrical problems this car has, with no recalls. Guess it will take someone to die before any thing is ever done. I need to be BAILED OUT from my GM. What a joke!
