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.

Bonneville ES V6

  • Automatic transmission

I have to fill it up every time i go and use the mileage as the gauge, real annoying. No idea how to fix it and considering all the other problems, I don't want to fix it.

problem #2

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles

In august 2006 i noticed that my gas gauge was going towards empty. So I had planned to stop at the next gas station... But before I could get there the needle went back to almost full.. So I thought i had looked at it incorrectly. Then all of a sudden the needle just dropped to empty. SO now i have to keep up with my gas level..

I don't like my car there are to many problems with this model. I will never buy another Pontiac..

problem #1

Feb 142006

(reported on)


  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles

I have to fill my tank and set the trip mileage so that I can know when I am getting close to empty. I was told it would cost at least $300 to fix it and I can't afford it. I will never have another Bonneville!!!!
