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.

2000 Pontiac Bonneville Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 012005

Bonneville SE 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles


Electronic distributor short caused cylinders to miss fire. another attempt at an overcharge by dealer, book calls for an hour, I replaced it myself in 5 minutes, removed two screws, unplugged distributor, plugged in new one (easily accessible), replaced two screws....done. GM applies the screws on the cost of the part, about $100. Dealer charge to do this work is ABSURD....good bye GM...Hello Honda---parts that don't fail due to poor engineering or shoddy workmanship! Bought 2nd Honda in 2 years! One happy car guy, Now! (a daughter is still driving our 1994 Accord EX 185,000 miles, runs great, looks great, no problems/properly maintained---Buy a Honda--Be Happy!)
