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

Apr 192005

Impala 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,100 miles


Car was running in my driveway while in park. I went in the house because I fogot my cell phone. About two minutes later the car crashed through my fence and I ran outside and jumped in it as we crashed through the garage door. The car had to be in park because the door opened from the outside and the wheels were locked so it drove straight. It has now been at the dealership for 20 days and nothing has been done. GM hasn't been any help and my insurance cannot touch the car until GM inspects it. My rental runs out in 8 days.
