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 2011 Chevrolet Impala. The contact stated that when the climate control was engaged, there was an abnormal noise coming from the dashboard. As a result, the defrost system failed to operate intermittently. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the climate control needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 84,000.

The blend door actuator in the vents jammed. Since March 2013, I've had to fix the same issue 3 times.

My Impala will not heat in idle position, no early morn defrosts for me! took to dealer ( 10/18/11) he found a leak, replaced a hose. It was good for a while, now doing again, (10/28/11), going back in shop on 11/3/11. Also car will not heat when remote starter is used, comes up to temp everytime just doesn't blow hot air, this has been reported to them, they tell me that's "normal", what"?, im sorry, but isn't the purpose of remote starters, for regulating cabin temperature" I will see how these two issues are handled on thurs, I have this funny feeling I will be back here on this site for the same issues.
