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

problem #1

Nov 152007

Impala 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 22,000 miles


Brought to a dealer that advised the front seal was leaking they repaired it and gave the vehicle back. Then the rear defroster stopped working and she still smelled the burning. The vehicle was brought to the dealer again and they advised that the wiring harness was melted and that they were surprised that the vehicle did not catch fire. The dealer replaced the wiring and she still experienced the burning smell. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer and they contacted the manufacturer who advised on how to repair the issue. The contact does not feel safe driving the vehicle until the source of the problem is found. The failure mileage was 22000.
