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.

I owe a Chevy Impala 2007 and I was having trouble with the car muffler, it was making a noise. On taking it to the service shop, I was told that it needed to be changed and the probable reason is the salt has caused the damage. The car has run 69 K miles. I ended up changing the muffler.

Impala

  • 100 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Impala. The contact stated that the brakes would squeak very loudly when the brake pedal was depressed. The dealer stated that the brakes were lubricated and should be fine. Two months later, the tire pressure sensor illuminated on the instrument panel. The dealer placed air into the tire and the sensor warning light illuminated again. The dealer stated that the sensor malfunctioned; therefore, it was replaced and recalibrated. The contact then began to hear a rattling noise coming from the rear passenger side. The dealer stated that the bracket for the exhaust manifold malfunctioned and was repaired. The latch mechanism on the driver's side door malfunctioned and caused the door to shake rapidly while in motion. The dealer replaced the door latch. While driving 40 mph, he suddenly depressed the brake pedal to avoid a crash on the interstate. The driver's seat bracket snapped and threw the contact backwards into the rear seat. The passenger in the vehicle grabbed the steering wheel to avoid a crash. The contact was completely displaced from the normal driving position. The vehicle was towed to the dealer and was unable to be driven. The dealer stated that the seat needed to be replaced, but made the necessary repairs in order for the vehicle to be driven again. The failure mileage was 100 and current mileage was 21,932.
