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 #1

  • 85,000 miles


Driving down paved road headlights will go out sometimes they will come back on and sometimes they won't. I also have reported my speedometer showing 80 or 90 mph when I am driving at normal speeds and 40 or 50 mph when completely stopped - sometimes it will not work at all. Vehicle has not been repaired due to the cost involved. Also have had a problem with my power steering pump and a wheel hub. Hub replaced and paid out of pocket and it did not correct the problem. Paid $600 to replace the hub. Had to replace the tires because of that defect.
