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.

All windows except drivers stopped working, all door locks except drivers stopped working. Car was stored for part of winter. I put in a new battery and now I have no climate control. Drivers side is hot, pass is cold. Pass heated seat does not work at all. Sun roof just broke! steering is making lots of noise, transmission seems to be slipping. Wtf why no recall. How can you purchase a car for 35,000 & it is "!@#$% before it hits 100,000? my Ford has 196,000 no problem, my Honda has 235,000 barely a problem. I have owned 4 Pontiac and now im paying thousands to fix the piece of ?!@#$%! why in the ?!@#$% do my windows not work!! all of them in one day? no door locks, at all? same day! now with a new battery, I have 90 deg air on the drivers side & 60 deg air on the passenger side. You try to drive this piece of ?!@#$%!! now my back passenger side window just fell down!! I have to use a magic marker to pry & hold it up!! we need a major recall on these faulty vehicles. Im a Pontiac fan, but ill never buy another one if you cant try and fix this ?!@#$%. my car looks like new but works like it was built by a bunch of idiots!! I am embarrassed to drive this car. It looks better than most 525 B-mirs but I have to tell all my friends that I have no door locks, no air, no windows or anything. Nothing like sitting inside a 135 degree leather bound flagship sweating your ?!@#$% off!! by the time I get to work im a big ball of sweat!! please stand behind your product. Im seriously looking to spend some of my money to promote a campaign to do nothing but talk ?!@#$%about your products. Get on line for a minute and see how many Bonneville owners are really having a hard time with the issues I have listed above! there are thousands!! time for a recall! don't U think? get your "!@#$% straight GM! my family works for you! we buy you please help!

I have had repeated trouble with my 2001 Bonneville, ,have had 3 window motors go out, ,,3 batteries go bad, ,,air compressor go bak, ,,moon roof worked on 3 times, ,,3rd time, ,,had 3 inches of water in floor, ,,,,the problem now is the steering, ,,you turn wheel, ,it makes popping, clucking noise, ,& feels like the front end is going to fall off.. the dealer said all it needed was grease, ,which they did last year, ,,now its doing it again, ,& now they say its a steering shaft problem...I have been waiting for over 3 weeks for the part to come in, ,,repeated calls, ,& I am told they have no idea when the part will come in, ,,they said drive it, ,,it won't fall out"???? they also said the reason for the delay is its a country wide back log???" what does that mead, ,,,I am afraid to drive this car...& GM service does not know either...
