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.

I have always driven Chevy, love them. However, in each I have had problems with my doors. I own a 2005 Impala, , and all of my doors are not working, two do not work at all 1 has to be held closed with a rope and the last is starting to show signs of breaking. I have taken to a Chevy dealership and they can not figure out the problem period. Um, this cost me money to do so. Please direct me to any recalls or how on earth to fix this problem, cheaply or free since it has got to be a manufacturing problem..
