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

Apr 012009

Bonneville 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles


The contact owns a 2001 Pontiac Bonneville. The contact stated that her vehicle would not start and the engine warning indicator illuminated on the instrument panel. In addition, she smelled a strong odor of gasoline coming from the vehicle. Upon further inspection, she noticed that the intake manifold was ruptured. The manufacturer stated that they would not assume responsibility for the repairs because the VIN was exlcuded from NHTSA campaign id number 04V090000 (fuel system, gasoline:delivery). The vehicle has not been repaired. The failure and current mileages were 120,000. Updated 5/7/09 updated 05/08/09.
