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.

There is a constant knocking in the dashboard, when I attempt to turn on the air condition or the heating system in the vehicle. This knocking causes the heat to be passed threw the vehicle, in the summer time I would have to turn the car off and on, then keep adjusting the air control until the air began to blow. Majority of the time the air does not come on, there is just constant heat coming for the dashboard and the floor board. I begin to notice that this knocking would occur while I was not in the car, while hitting the remote for entry into car and while the car is being driven. I had a neighbor whose vehicle was doing the same thing. As time went on I could be walking threw a parking and hear that same sounds in other Impala models.

I have owned the car since 9/2013. Shortly after purchasing the airbag sensor light started illuminating on and off. I took it back to the dealer and it was serviced. Shortly after that it came on again. Then back in February the car started making a very annoying and embarrassing clicking sound that comes from the ac/heating unit. I was told that it was common in the Impala and that it is the actuator. It has gotten so bad that it clicks even when the car is not running and is locked. I know at least 7 people here locally that has the same problems as listed above with the same year and model car. Please take a survey or do something because this is definitely a manufacturing issue.
