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.

1995 Pontiac Bonneville Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 052007

Bonneville 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 91,732 miles


I bought my 1995 Pontiac new. Have always maintained it with qualified auto technicians.

Have taken it to 1 place not where it was cheaper or try to save a dollar. When I had my car serviced I told them if they saw a leaking hose or anything that looked frayed or they thought it need to be replaced , do it then while they were there doing whatever, because I trusted there decisions. In Nov. of 2007 I took my car there as my Anti freeze was disappearing out of the reservoir & I had to add anti freeze every day. They said I had a leak in the radiator , so they put in a new radiator, & checked the belts & hoses.

After that the anti freeze really started to leak out of the reservoir, I checked it everyday

(2) times a day whenever I drove it. Took my car back to auto shop & told them that the anti freeze was leaking & had to add all the time. They pressure checked it , put a new radiator cap on . Drove off & it really started messing up the temperature gage was almost to the hot mark, the oil temp gage was bouncing in the low zone, the bell was going off & the check engine light was on. Called them & took it back. They replaced the intake manifold gasket, valve cover gaskets, spark plugs, oil pressure switch,pigtail ops. elbow heater hose, added anti freeze, drained the oil & replaced with new, & put a oil stabilizer in it. When I picked it up it was runnable, but still felt something was not right with it , sometimes when I would start it up it would sound like a thrashing machine &like it was missing, then it would level out & would run not well but it ran, at this point I'm still adding anti freeze. The auto shop said run the car keep your eye on the anti freeze & really there's not much more they can do. So I finally took it to a Pontiac dealer for a second opinion. Well, guess what I need a new engine to the tune of over $6,000.00, that I don't have. I went on your web site & did find out that the 1995 Pontiac was noted for that happening at 90,000.00 miles & up. I wonder why me the consumer was not aware of these flaws when we purchase the vehicle or vehicles..I certainly will do a little more research next time I buy a new vehicle if I ever due buy a new car again.

It seems that no matter how much a person knows there's always something else to learn, especially when you've made the wrong decision.
