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.

2009 Chevrolet Impala Owner Comments

Impala 6-cyl

  • 49,603 miles


A 2009 Chevy Impala police package cruiser car came into our shop this morning. The complaint was of chirping tires sound around turns.upon inspection we found that the right lower control arm has broken away from the bushing area. Causing the alignment to be off and the control arm to be unstable. This condition could have lead to a accident if gone undetected or resulted in loss of control during a high speed pursuit. This is the second vehicle to have this condition. We have grounded our fleet of cruisers so they can be brought in and inspected one at a time.we have found one additional car that the arm is cracked but not yet broken through. All of the defects have been on the right side upto now.
