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.

Dad: 2001 Pontiac Bonneville. The ignition switch is computerized and works intermittently. When driving the switch fails to recognize the key and shuts the engine off. This happened three or four months. Vehicle stalled while I was in traffic. Took vehicle to dealership on September 27, 2005 and had the switch changed and the key reprogrammed. Have not had any accidents. There were service information bulletins and the documents; 686736 and 760683 for November 2, 2000. The consumer called the manufacturer, they said there was no recall, and it cost $550 to be fixed.
