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.

I was driving on the interstate with the cruise control engaged when the vehicle displayed a message from the driver information center about traction control disengaged and stabilitrack needing service. Ses light also illuminated. Took the vehicle in for service as soon as I could get an appointment, but by that time all lights had returned to normal. Dealership was unable to replicate problem and nothing was done.

Traction control activates while making left turns when leaving a stop or a red light sign or at any occasion that requires making a left turn after being stopped. Causing the vehicle to hesitate and in the process creating a very dangerous situation. This has occurred on two occasions during the past few months. Has only occurred when turning left from a complete stop.

When driving normally system panel will light up with service brake assist, service traction control, service stabilitrak. While turning traction control will automatically turn itself on and grind the wheels making turning difficult. When braking the brakes will not engage right away and ABS light will come on.

Impala 6-cyl

  • 14,600 miles
When turning the wheel to the left at low speeds (like when backing out of my driveway) the ABS light comes on; the front left wheel makes a grinding noise in conjunction with the light blinking; there is an immediate loss of power, like the car is being held back by something. Same happens when turning, on a hill coming from a complete stop but this is random and not easily re-created. I've also noticed a wobble in the steering when taking bends on the highway at high speeds. It seems to have gotten worse since I took it in for service a few days ago. I've resorted to turning the traction control off before putting the car in drive and this seems to ameliorate the problem. Took the vehicle in for service and demonstrated the problem to them and they agreed that it was obviously not performing as it should. They had a mechanic look at it and determine that there was nothing structurally wrong with any of the components that he could tell and that there were "no codes being thrown" - whatever that means. So they told me there is nothing they can do for me, it cannot be "fixed" because, according to GM there is nothing wrong with my car even though it is a demonstrable equipment failure. I should not have to turn off the traction control -a safety feature!- on my car to drive it without loosing power at the worst times. My car is a 2013 Chevy Impala ls with almost 15,500 miles on it.

Impala 6-cyl

Traction control engages and light comes on and goes off and engine reduces power and ABS pump comes on all at the same time. Occurs intermittent and only when it sits for a day and when you back out of a parking space and then put it in forward gear to go forward. Haven't had it to a dealer yet but was told that if it wasn't showing a code that they would do anything about it. Car is a 2013 Chevy Impala ltz with 32000 miles.

I just purchased my 2013 Chevrolet Impala ltz in the last 30 days. Have driven less than 1500 miles. While highway driving, I received a service stabilitrak and a slight noise occurred while driving. GM customer care was closed at that time, however next morning the service warning was off...but I still followed up with GM. The customer care representative said most likely if the service warning went off - it was just a glitch. However, I was also able to confirm at that time that because I have the bumper to bumper warranty, it is a covered issue and I could still take it in to be looked at and any authorized GM dealer. Now just to figure out where...
