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.

Impala 4-cyl

  • 3,200 miles
At highway speeds from 45-70mph on both straight, smooth pavement and on wide sweeping curves, the steering "freezes" and requires a turn of the wheel to regain control. This "freezing" feels like the steering is stuck in a notch, or certain position. This has occurred on slippery conditions at lower speeds (42 mph) and the effort to correct the steering resulted in an over-correction on the slippery road surface causing the car to slide into the oncoming lane. The Chevrolet dealer says they "can't duplicate the condition." The first time the condition was observed, the temperature was in the 60S. It is more frequent when the temperature is 20-35 degrees. With 8600 miles as of 4/6/15, the condition persists more frequently.

On 9/3/14 a new Chevy Impala vehicle was leased to me while under A7/23/14 open recall for power steering. I understand that this is illegal and the transaction is not legal. Please advise.

Impala 6-cyl

  • 9,400 miles


Driving under normal highway conditions the power steering suddenly stopped functioning and the "service power steering" message displayed on the dash. I pulled the vehicle off at the next exit and turned the engine off. When restarted the power steering returned as I assume the software rebooted. The power steering recall has been performed on the vehicle prior to this incident. This is the first time it has happened and the dealer cannot find the issue thus making the vehicle unsafe to drive in my opinion especially since I have 16 year old daughter learning how to drive. If she had been driving when this incident happened I highly doubt she would have been strong enough to maneuver the car.

problem #1

Nov 212013


  • 11,368 miles
At 55 mph on a slippery right hand side curve (speed limit is 65 mph) vehicle under-steered and lost traction completely, without touching the brakes, it started to slow down and skidded to the outside of the curve (to the left). I tried to get it back to the driving lane, it started to skid laterally to the right and slowed down until it hit a reflector post on the edge of the right lane and stopped. Vehicle information on the dash board read "ice detected...". although the damage on the right door was a very minor dent, the car deployed all 4 head curtain airbags and 2 right side airbags, engine was shut down and front seat-belts were stuck. Few minutes later, the engine ran normally with the "ice detected.." message still on. It seems that the airbags sensors were activated for no required reason for a minor dent on the door. Also, the stability and the faulty braking system might be of a great safety issue on this vehicle.
