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.

2013 Chevrolet Impala Owner Comments

Impala 6-cyl

Car has a grinding noise and hesitates when taking a left turn from a stop. Only happens intermittently at this point. Feels like the traction control coming on for no reason. (but then I am not a mechanic) no indicator lights on the dashboard come on when it happens. It is dangerous because the car hesitates and pulling out into traffic this is an uncomfortable situation. Sometimes it may happen 5 to 6 times a day and then it stops and doesn't happen for days or weeks again. Does not seem to be related to weather conditions as it happens at all different times. Brought it to the dealer and they cannot diagnose the issue because it doesn't happen when they drive it. They checked the car and cannot find a problem. Told to bring it back if the problem persists and gets more frequent.
