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.

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.

Impala

  • 143,000 miles
On Saturday, November 15, 2014, I took my 2007 Chevrolet Impala ls to hailey's Chevrolet for the "electrical ignition / key recall." After my keys were fixed and the two 6mm rings were attached to them, I was driving 25 mph down the highway, slowed down for another vehicle that was turning; then the service airbag and service tire pressure monitoring system lights illuminated, flickered three times, and have remained on since then. I didn't have any problems with my vehicle; until the recall repairs listed above were performed. I am scared to drive my car even short distances now because of all the news headlines about, "airbags exploding" and fear of, what might happen with my tires. These matters should really be investigated.

And other customer complaints there are ignition problems, fuel tank adhesive problem and a steering knuckle problem; this means ignition can turn off while driving, excessive rear tire wear resulting in tire blow outs(hard to see because it is inside of rear tires and uneven wear, also let us not forget that the fuel can escape from gas tank and cause a fire and windshield posts terrible for visibility etc....GM is well aware of these problems and has recalled police Impala and not civilian owned Impala, ,,,could someone please tell me why GM is allowed to make such a vehicle...millions of people have them and are in danger, this was to be my last car..I am a senior, disabled and wanted to be a loyal made in the usa customer...I cannot afford all these repairs and it seems GM is not doing the majority ie out of my pocket.

Also noticed another Impala has rust spot same place I do on trunk near Impala need cambur kit and wheel alignment...purchased new set of tires.

The power window keeps breaking. We take it to get fixed and a month or two later it breaks. The last time it went out my window shattered. I have been driving without a driver side window and a passenger window being held up with pencils. I can't afford to keep paying for these windows to be fixed every month.
