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 Chevrolet Impala Owner Comments

I have a 2006 Chevy Impala lt 3.9 with 55,000 miles just had to put water pump 2by pass hose and bottom hose bill came to around $470. This car has been babied ever since new and with top notch service performed regularly. Besides this problem the tire air sensors are also a joke replaced two of them at around $70 each. Still don't work properly. While I'm on roll I should mention the remote start, unlock, system is also a joke, took it to a dealer told them it would not work anything, they came back to me two hours later and said the module in drivers door was bad, two remotes, module, calibration and $917 and they would have me on my way. Ha ha. Told them to put it back together and I was paying my $80 for the time spent and leaving. As I was going to my car the service rep. Said when they put it back together it began working, everything but tire pressure info. I have read other people have remote problems just wondered how common this problem is. Also I cannot believe my water pump went bad @55,000 miles.
