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.

I purchised this car in April of '08 and it has been failing since I bought it. There is a vibration while riding in the car that makes your body bounce. The dealer states they don't feel it, but I have cronic back pain from it. I have had it at the dealer several times and no fix. I took it to an alinement shop they told me that the stuts were set out from the factory so the tires don't hit the grond flat like they should. The problem causes my tires to slip out of balance constantly making the vibration worse. My windshield and dash both make craking noises now from all the vibration in the car. It makes for a very uncomfortable ride. I am on my 3rd set of tires at 28.300. The brakes don't work properly, the dealer has turned the rotors twice for warping. Now they are grooved and they tell me that "it's normal" and I don't have the normal stoping power I should. The power stering squiels, but they can't hear it. The front end has a banging noise when going over bumps, "they don't hear",but I can feel it in the floor board when it happens. The car is sluggish when excelerating, "no problem found". the fuel econemy has decreased as well. While on an incline the car roles backward like a standard, "it's normal" I have never had a car do that without the trany being bad. When stoped at a light the trany takes a couple of seconds to reengage for take off. Tps repeated problems not working poperly. The cars handling is very poor in the rain, snow, or ice. The muffler system has a leak as well.

I did not realize such a website existed. I have purchased many new vehicles and have always been happy until I purchased my 2007 Impala brand new with 27 miles. I started looking on the internet due to "steering" problem and found this website. You can be driving down the road and the steering wheel will lock up and not move for several seconds. It would be very easy to have a accident you need the wheels to turn, but the wheel want move. I think my husband thought I was crazy until he happen to be with me the other day and witness this. I have noticed that all 5 times this has happened it has been raining out. The 1st 2 times were probably a year ago, but it has happened 3 times in the last 2 months. I have also had the tire issue, did not think about it being the car, but I have had 3 sets of brand new tires on this vehicle. Same problem someone else mentioned the rear tires wear completely out on the inside. I had wires hanging out on 1 year old tires. I do not feel safe at all in this vehicle and can't imagine anyone wanting to drive a vehicle that the steering locks up. I have 2 precious children and am not happy with this. I still owe a tremendous amount on the vehicle so I don't really have any options but to report to someone that might could help. Thanks! the structure- the door molding just fell off on the drivers side one day.

I purchased Eagle F1 (235/50zr18) tires from the corporate Goodyear store in richmond, Virginia on April 3, 2008. In less than one year, four tires were replaced due to cupping. I researched the internet and discovered other complaints about Eagle F1 cupping issues. Now, two additional Eagle F1 tires have cupped. I have paid a prorated cost for four additional tires, now two additional tires have cupped. I discovered customers who purchased Goodyear Eagle F1 tires from tire rack received four new tires at no cost plus a $100 per tire payment to offset tire mounting, freight and balancing. To date, I have spent $1,995.99 for eight Eagle F1 tires with cupping issues. Goodyear offered to replace the four Eagle F1S currently on my car with four non Eagle F1 tires for $722. Goodyear denies a tire recall. The manager indicated the Eagle F1S as one of goodyears best tires, however, they are no longer on display in his store. Goodyear has yet to offer adequate compensation based on that received by customers of tire rack, which is not a Goodyear corporate store.

I am now buying the 3rd set of rear tires in less than a year. The inside tread wears down to the wires every 13-16,000 miles. The VIN on my car falls within the VIN's listed on GM tsb 8032, however this car is not a police car. GM states that I must be hitting a pothole causing alignment problems. I must be hitting the same pothole at the same mileage all 3 times and it only affects the rear tires. There is extensive anecdotal references to this problem on numerous car complaint websites, including NHTSA. Someone is going to get seriously hurt if GM is allowed to ignore this problem. GM's only solution is to sell me alignments and tires since it is "my fault" and even though the problem is identical to the issue noted by GM in tsb 8032, it can't possibly be related since the other identical problem only happens on police and government cars to which GM sells a lot of cars. The everyday individual does not have the complaining power of a large bulk purchaser.

Vibration and pulling on highway in speeds above 60mph. Had tires rotated/balanced and numerous alignments performed without resolution. Third party inspected tires and found "tread separation" on 3 of the 4 tires. Tires exhibited these problems since about 29000 miles and were replaced at 36000.

Bought my 2007 Impala at local dealership. Was a rental with 12,000 miles on it. Always had a bumpy ride and it pulled a bit to the left. At a recent oil change, I asked for the tires to be rotated as it now had about 24,000 miles. Guy at oil place said I shouldn't rotate them since the better of the 4 tires were in the front already and with winter coming, was best to leave them as they were. Said they are wearing on the insides of the rear tires, down to the steel belts. I took it to the Chevy dealer where I purchased it. They indicated they had one other complaint like this. Offered a 4-tire alignment that they would cover. This was not covered by GM warranty (would have been covered up to 7,000 miles). They then quoted me for 2 new tires to replace the rear tires. After some discussion, they were able to get their GM representative to cover part of the cost of the 2 new tires and the dealership covered the rest. I was given a loaner car for a night also. Dealership is fantastic. This is the 4th car I had purchased from them and they have great customer service. GM on the other hand has a problem with these vehicles and should issue a recall to get alignments done on all of them before tires get in such bad shape! kudos to my Chevy dealership and shame on GM!

The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Impala. The vehicle has Goodyear integrity, size 175/70R13 tires. While driving 30 mph in the snow, the vehicle began to slide. The failure also occurred in wet and icy conditions. The dealer stated that the tires were defective and needed to be replaced; however, they did not specify the reason. The dot number, VIN, engine size, and number of cylinders were unknown. The current and failure mileages were 25,000.

Impala 6-cyl

Within 6 months of leasing a 07 Impala, there has been three separate occasions my tire has lost all air pressure while parked within hours. 1st instance: Between 10 a.M. and 1 P.M. the tire lost air to where the rim was touching the ground. 2nd instance: Lost 1/2 of air overnight - again the rim touched the ground. I had pep boys and the dealership where I am leasing the vehicle examine the tire and both said nothing was wrong with the tire and it was probably someone letting the air out of the tire. Third instance: I left my vehicle in the garage overnight and woke up to the rim touching the ground. This ruled out someone letting the air out of the tire. I again took it to the Chevy dealership who I am leasing through, and once again, I was told nothing was wrong with the tire.
