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.

The contact owns a 2009 Chevrolet Impala. The contact stated that the air conditioner would only blow air from the windshield vent, and as a result, the windshield would freeze. The contact also stated that the front driver's side door latch would not allow the door to remain open, and would sometimes close on her leg. The vehicle was not taken to have the failures diagnosed or repaired. The failure mileage was 16,000. The VIN was unavailable.

I have a 2009 Chevy Impala lt. Right after I bought this car, I found that there is a vision distortion with the windshield. The dealer replaced it reluctantly, after I discussed with them. However, there is still vision distortion with the new one, just at different spots. It is dangerous to have vision distortion if I look far ahead. It cause dizziness and tiredness very easily and it is dangerous to the driver and other road users. I am wondering if this is a common issue.
