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 #6

Sep 042013

Bonneville SLE 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 135,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Transmission suddenly failed, no indicated warning signs. Was quoted over $2k to fix by AAMCO transmissions, purchased a used unit from scrap yard for $425, had AAMCO replace it for $825, didn't have any problems with tranny on this car since. But had plenty of other problems with this car (no start due to security system lock out $500 to fix, sudden engine shut down with no start condition) and eventually dumped the car.

Hvae had four transmissions since 2000. Were told there is a problem with the tranny that came out for that vehicle and that it should have been recalled but was not.

Bonneville SSEi 3.8L

Can't believe a transmission would drop 3rd and 4th gear after 60000 miles of city female driving. And you wonder why people buy Japanese!
