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

Impala 6-cyl

  • 77,491 miles


I was forced to make repairs to ignition system that Chevrolet refused to cover. My cost to dealer $969.61 I was told by GM to wait for a recall announcement and seek reimbursement at that time. On 8/12 GM issued a recall on my vehicle for these affected parts. I have heard nothing back from GM concerning my claim for reimbursement. Is GM obligated to reimburse me for this repair that could have been avoided had the issued a prompt recall on my vehicle?
