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.

2007 Chevrolet Impala Owner Comments

GM has issued a letter to those effected in GM recall 14299 saying that parts are now available. Call your dealership to schedule an appointment asap. I called and was told parts had to be ordered and would be between 30-60 days at which point an appointment could/would be made. Why is it to take so long to get the part delivered to a dealership if the parts are "available"" consider that in the recent Toyota airbag recall, we hear on the news this past week that parts can be available in 3 days. Why is there such a large discrepancy between the 2 manufactures" when I spoke with the dealership, I advised them that I was leaving the area in 30-45 days and if the replacement was not completed by the time I leave, I would not be back until April. That's another 6 months on the road with this defect. I don't understand why a 30 day delay to get parts to the dealer, particularly when they said for this vehicle it was only an ignition key adjustment that was needed, not a switch replacement. Is this true (I have a 2007 Impala)?
