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.

Like everyone else with this problem, the paint is peeling off my car. I wonder if this should have been a factory recall item.

It is a very nice car and runs great, but Pontiac should do something about the paint job. I keep my car clean and every time I wash it, paint peels off. Because of this problem, I can't wax my car.

As the other complaints ... Paint is peeling off Hood , Roof , and even inside of the inner front fenders ... Well I doubt it is just white paint having problems it is probably all the paint from 1998 or even a bigger variety of the years before and after ....
