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.

Brake recall is not listed on site for Impala 2006 ss.. I had a problem with my brakes which the recall corrected the problem. The upgrade is not completed car is harder to stop. GM and ted evens (cs department) from the Chevy did not think of it has a big problem. However I can tell you my car will stop much better now.
