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.

2001 Pontiac Bonneville Owner Comments

Bonneville 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 76,592 miles


I purchased this car used 1 year ago. At that time the dealer agreed to fix a shaking in the front end of the car when the brakes were applied. The rotors were replaced because they were warped. In the last week I have noticed that I am again getting that shaking in the front end of the car. At 35 miles per hour the steering wheel about jumps out of your hand when the brakes are applied at a reasonable pressure when slowing. If I were to have an emergency where fast braking were needed I do not know if I could hold the car on the road the shaking is that bad. I can't understand what is wrong and why the rotors are not holding up. Can you help me.

Bad metal for rotors; no reason for this to have happened to the age or use of this vehicle.
