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.

Impala 6-cyl

  • 33,500 miles
Car was serviced (oil change and tire rotation). Afterwards when driving the car 50-60 mph there is a vibration felt in wheel and in seat. Took back to dealer, had all 4 wheels balanced. Problem still existed. Additionally there is a clunking noise in front end, noticeable at low speeds (10-15mph) when going over small bumps in road; noticeable when A/C and radio turned off. Dealer cannot identify any problem, says its operating as designed, no noise. Frustrating considering these problems were not present at purchase or at 30,000 miles. Additionally the airbag / seatbelt indicator illuminates for passenger seat at random times for no reason. Something as simple as a bottle on the seat will make it illuminate.
