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.

Constant clunking in steering whenever turning...... suppose to be GM certified car which absolutely means nothing.. within a year of dealership declaring this to be GM certified, everything seemed to fall apart. I had to replace the intermediate steering shaft, part was $120 and labor was $70. Also valve in gas tank bad, check engine light which also cost money, money, money. Thanks GM, I will be sure to buy another Impala or any other GM product. Time to go Toyota or hyuandi.
