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.

problem #3

Impala 6-cyl

While driving on the interstate my visibility became very difficult to be able to continue driving. My windshield wipers stop working, so I had to pull off the interstate because of poor visibility. The motor and the transmitter in the wipers are working but they are not moving at all on the windshield.

Impala 6-cyl

When there is any movement to the car before starting there is a knocking that sounds like it is coming from the air vent on the passenger side; possible actuator door "? also, when switching between fresh and recirculated air the knocking starts and lasts 1 - 2 minutes. The noise is getting louder and I have noticed that when the temperature drops below 36 degrees the windows fog completely and running the defroster at its maximum speed will not clear the windows. I have to wipe the excess condensation with a towel to maintain visibility. May have to do with the actuator door being stuck and interferes with the defroster?" I have tried using rain-X anti-fog wipes to no avail. Need some help GM.

The contact owns a 2010 Chevrolet Impala. The contact stated that the rear window defrosting system failed. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where a diagnostic was performed, which located the failure at the rear defrost wiring harness. The manufacturer advised that the failure was caused by ordinary wear and tear. The vehicle was repaired. The approximate failure and current mileage was 65,000.
