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.

2006 Chevy Impala ss has had several mechanical issues most recently flat tires. The first incident was a front right tire loosing air slowly. Today the front left tire went flat suddenly and on the interstate. The damaged section of tire was on the inside and appeared to have been punctured by another piece of the suspension. The dealer ship insists that I need to pay for repairs everytime. The car is an unbelievable inconvenience.

I purchased a 2006 Chevrolet Impala ltz in December of 2005 and approximately 3 months ago I started to receive a message from the driver information center that the tire pressure monitor system needed to be serviced. I have taken the vehicle to our local Chevrolet dealer on at least five occasions for this problem and it is still not fixed. The dealership has more than fulfilled it's part of the bargain in that they have re-programmed the system on at least two occasions and have replaced the entire instrument cluster at the suggestion of the factory rep. Individual sensor on the problem wheel, (right rear), has also been replaced, all to no avail. There have been numerous contacts between the dealership and the manufacturer during this time. The last that I heard after having the vehicle at the shop for two days was that they were waiting for a call back from a service rep and that the manufacturer was considering replacing the entire right wheel and hub. This was about three weeks ago and I still have this problem.
