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.

2005 Chevrolet Impala Owner Comments

problem #2

My wife was sitting still at a red light on a road with a 50mph speed limit. The other driver did not see the red light or her car & rear ended her at full speed. The back of her seat snapped all the way back and the bottom of the seat lodged upward causing her thighs and pelvic area to be severely compressed between the steering wheel and seat while her head was jostled around vigorously due to the lack of back support. Her seatbelt was on and worn properly. Her body was thrown forward then slammed back hard. She sustained injury and was diagnosed with a brain contusion and severe whiplash by the trauma unit after being rushed via ambulance to the nearest local hospital.

Driver seat heater stopped working. Heat on driver side blows cool air and passenger side blows warm. Rough shifting of speed between 20-30 mph since first month of purchase.
