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.

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.

Impala

  • 4,200 miles
"service traction control" and "reduced engine power" warning during normal driving on my way to work this morning. The car suddenly decelerated and started running terribly, causing a potential safety issue. I've only had the car for 2 months! apparently this has been a common problem with Impala for several years now that GM is seemingly unable to fix. Had I known about this issue I would not have purchased an Impala. GM sold me a lemon. Very disappointed.
