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

problem #1

Feb 012014

Bonneville SE 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 134,000 miles


Feb 1st,2014 I warmed up car before heading home from girlfriend's house, got a few miles down road and started to notice electrical burn smell, the next thing I've got, my car filling up with smoke, it took me about 30 seconds to figure out it was coming from the headliner. I immediately rolled windows down and came to a stop and turned off ignition. This could have cost me my life or been involved in a accident, Thank God I was not on the interstate or other major highway. The smoke from the headliner burning totally filled the car. I'm looking for any Recalls concerning this Major Problem.
