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.

The back two cradle mounts on both sides rusted out and mounts pulled through the cradle causing the steering to become loose filling and causing steering to be out of alignment and when hit brakes front would dart one way or the other and lots of noise coming from under vehicle from cradle bouncing when hitting bumps tried the find one in junk yards and all are that way.

The motor mount bolts sheared off the vehicle while driving. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic who determined that the bolts had indeed sheared off and caused the power steering pump to break free. The consumer stated that exactly 3 weeks later, the same thing happened again. This time he had the vehicle towed to a Pontiac dealer. The Pontiac dealer/mechanic told him that by the bolts being sheared off, it had cracked his block, and it would cost him $70 to really checked the vehicle and approximately $1400 to repair it. The consumer stated that he called GM and was almost told, that they do not want anything to do with it. Consumer stated that he thinks General Motors should take some responsibility since they know about this problem.
