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.

Paint is peeling around key hole on trunk - at this time approximately a 5 inch diameter circle spot. The hood is turning milky looking. We took it to a local dealership where we were told that our car was in very good condition and had been taken very good care of. We were turned down due to being out of warranty and there are no recalls on your 1998 Bonneville regarding any paint concerns.

While driving vehicle about 10 mph and sometimes higher speeds, according to consumer, the vehicle just shuts off, losing power and steering power. The engine check light comes on when engine stops. Consumer had taken vehicle to dealer twice they said: The problem is with the fuel pump that's why the engine was not working. Consumer states that the fuel pump was not the cause of the problem, possible engine problem.
