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.

I have always had this problem since I bought the car. It is just getting worse. I mostly notice it when I am pulling out of the drive way it's a downhill slope. When I put the car from reverse to drive it makes this crazy jerk and noise. Like its trying to go but it doesn't. It will take a minute then it will. Sliping gears. Sometimes when I am driving it will slip really hard. It does it off and on. Makes me feel like this car is a piece of sh*t. This is the first car I financed. Will be the last from Pontiac with all the problems I have had with it. I will wait to buy another until I drive it into the ground!!!
