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.

The rear window defogger failed to operate and a burning smell was detected by passengers. It was discovered that an electrical connector that routes the power to the rear window defogger has a defective design and overheats and burns due to improperly sized connector pins in wiring harness connector located near the passenger kick panel. The problem is also documented in a number of sites on the internet including youtube where a video of the exact failure was found to be the identical failure as in our Impala. This is the website: Https:// I have photographs of the failed/burned connector in my car but I don't see where I can submit them. Judging by the design problem, this same problem would be found in every Impala using this connector since the electrical contacts are not sized properly to carry the high current to the defogger. This is a definite fire hazard and the cars should be recalled for the failure - I contacted Chevrolet and they would not acknowledge the defect/problem.

Turned on rear window defroster, smelt burning plastic near passenger side door, found wire harness on passenger side kick panel melted at the rear window defroster connection due to high heat in the connector and it had scorched the underside of the interior carpet. Burnt both male and female ends of connector so it no longer works. Contacted Chevrolet and was told that it was a common problem that they had seen but there was no recall or advisory on it.

The vehicle is blowing cold air out of the passenger side of the vehicle even though the dual temperature controls are both set to hot. The safety issue here is that the defrost is also blowing cold air and will eventually cause impaired visibility due to the defroster not working on the passenger side. Doing research on the issue it seems to be the actuator on the passenger side. I just recently replaced the actuator on the drivers side.

Since I have had my Impala I have had several problems with the ca. The first problem that I noticed was that my windshield wiper fluid stop coming out after on having the car a few months, I later found out that the motor had gone out. Another problem that im having is that the check tire service light continues to come on even after, tires have been filled and replaced, I have also noticed that on occasions many of the other service lights come on like check airbags, and brakes even after car has been serviced. My biggest issue is that my transmission fluid has begun to leak out my car and no one not even the dealership can figure out where or why its leaking. This causes the car to hesitate and jerk upon acceleration. Reading a lot of the forums out I'm not the only person having these problems and I think that an investigation should be done on the Impala.
