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.

THESE CARS HAVE A SERIOUS PROBLEM BEGINNING WITH THE 2001 MODEL YEAR! THE 3.8L ENGINE SHOULD BE RECALLED FOR THE UPPER INTAKE MANIFOLD, I AM A MECHANIC WHO WORKS ON A FLEET OF THESE IMPALA'S. WHEN YOU HAVE TO REPLACE UPPER INTAKE MANIFOLDS ON A REGULAR BASIS SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED BY GM!!!

Impala 3.2L V6

This car has gotten on my last nerve!!!! It's been running hot since April 2010. I have had this car fixed several times, and I was told it needed a water pump, thermastic, and I needed to change the type of anti freeze from green to orange what the world. Just yesterday I had the car fixed again, and the guy who fixed said the belt wasn't tighten on the water pump, and this should fix your problem. Well, it did not I drove my car 3 miles and it ran HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
