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 vehicle, a 2005 Chevy Impala, has had an issue concerning my fuel pressure regulator. After taking my vehicle to the Chevy dealership to find out what the issue was, the diagnostics test had discovered that the fuel pressure regulator was damaged. I did further research on the issue they discovered I have come to find out that there was a recall on the same exact part on March 12 of 2007. When I returned to pick up my vehicle, they also mentioned another issue about my vehicles steering. This also showed up on the list of recalls for my model/year vehicle. When I asked regarding the issue of why my car was not involved in the recall, they stated that my VIN number is not in the list of cars they felt should be recalled. I was concerned and wondering why would my vehicle not be recalled also when the same exact issued occurred on my vehicle as well.
