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.

1995 Pontiac Bonneville Owner Comments

problem #2

Jan 022007

(reported on)

Bonneville SE V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


The tail light assembly on my 1995 Pontiac Bonneville SSE is supported by 3 plastic studs that are part of the tail light assembly. I believe thermal stress between the plastic studs and the metal housing plate result in failure of the mounting studs and the three studs fail leave the assembly hanging by the wiring. I had both rear tail light assemblies fail in the last 5 years. There is no sign of physical contact and both appeared after exposure to hot summer sunlight.

But the "good" news is that a new assembly only cost $300!
