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.

2010 Chevrolet Impala Owner Comments

problem #4

Feb 112015


  • 104,000 miles


After purchasing this vehicle within 30 days the air bag system light came on I took the vehicle back to future Nissan of folsom and they stated that I would have to call the warranty people there was nothing they could do about it. A week later I noticed when I slow down using the breaks it makes a shaking sound, making the whole car shake. This vehicle also has no coverage when pumping gas I noticed the silver cap inside that's suppose to remain closed until you put the gas pump in there in always open, which allows air to get inside. My powertrain is not accelerations properly, it takes about a minute for it to catch its gear.

Impala 6-cyl

  • 47,500 miles
While driving on the highway and accelerating to merge, the car felt as if it dropped a gear or two and the power was noticeably reduced. The service light on the dash came on and the error message "service stabilitytrac- service traction control" came across the dash. Now the car when it accelerates "jerks" as if it's having trouble making it to the next gear when moving between 20-30mph on the speedometer. The power in accelerating after 30mph is dramatically reduced the faster you wish to go.

I was driving on a rural road at 55 miles per hour in my 2010 Impala and it was just a normal activity no excessive turning or driving. My light came on and said to service traction control. Then my light said engine power has been reduced. I was trying to get to a safe place to pull off the road an my light came on again and it said it was disengaging the throttle and my car just quit. No power steering no warning just quit and I barely got it off the road in time to keep me from crashing! the car wouldn't start for about ten minutes but finally I got it started and made it home. If I had been on the interstate this could have been tragic !
