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.

I purchased a new 2015 Chevrolet Impala LT2 on June 30, 2015 with 25 miles on the odometer from red river Chevy, bossier city, la. The gps and navigation and the whole infotainment system stopped working. Onstar could not locate my vehicle. It kept saying I was in Texas when I haven't been to Texas in this vehicle. The car must have come from Texas. The car was placed in the repair shop on July 27 and is still in the shop. They could not get it to work while I was at the dealership. The brakes on the car have a burning smell to them and have a creeking sound. When I stop it sounds like something is rubbing the tires. I asked about the brakes, I was told it could not be fixed because GM has not released the software to fix the problem and the sound the brakes make, he stated he probably couldn't fix the sound. The road noise in this car is really loud now. It wasn't loud like this when I purchased the vehicle. My 83 yr old mother mentioned the noise and she's hard of hearing. A local mechanic told me ball bearings will make that type of noise. I know GM installed bad switches, I hope they didn't install bad brakes and ball bearings. They are aware of the sound and I was told its just Louisiana highways. What am I supposed to do about the brake issue" I would like a new car that is safer to drive. It has not been 30 days can I get a refund or another vehicle"
