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

Mar 242009


  • Automatic transmission
  • 77,322 miles


After starting car, accelerating in forward or reverse would cause the traction control system and light to activate. Same thing would happen occasionally when traveling slow around a 90 degree corner. A couple times, the "Service Traction Control" light turned on, but would not persist across a restart.

The service rep. said it might be a wheel hub bearing, but it turned out to be frayed speed sensor wires on the right front wheel. The speed sensor harness was replaced and the problem went away.

problem #1

Impala Sedan 3.2lV6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 84,500 miles

My car is a 2004 Impala with 84,500 miles on it.My speedometer should still be operating on a car that is 4 yrs old. Leaving the driveway you will be on "0" then as soon as you barely get up to speed it will jump to 70 miles a hour, even though I "may" be going 20 miles an hour at the time. This poses a terrible risk to the owner and others. Chevrolet should fix this problem at no cost to the owners before someone gets hurt.
