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.

1998 Pontiac Bonneville Owner Comments

Bonneville 6-cyl

On multiple occasions I have pulled to a dead stop at a light and during the idling time the engine shuts off and it will not start again. Very embarrassing set of trips to nearby grocer...

problem #3

  • miles
Consumer's vehicle was included in recall 04V09000. He was told that the recall would be taken care off. Consumer's vehicle blew up approximately two to three years ago. He received a recall letter days ago, and was told that the work should have been done 2 or 3 years ago. Contacted Pontiac, and was told that the plenum was the defective part on the vehicle. Which had nothing to do with the fuel pressure regulator. However, his claim was denied.
