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.

If this is not where I need to send a complaint, please forward this message to the correct persons. I own a 2001 Pontiac Bonneville with only 52,000 miles. I bought this car in May 2004. In June 2004 the power window went out. I was informed that they could not just replace the "arm" but also the window motor with a cost $300. Then, only 3 months later the check engine light came on and I found out that the ignition module went out which made the ignition coil go out, which made the ignition cables go bad! that was an additional $650! the reason I am upset is because carmax supposedly have their cars "carmax certified". they are supposed to protect against getting a "lemon".

My major complaint now is I have a 2001 Bonneville with a little over 24,000 miles on it. The hood is rusting from the inside out and has blistered up the original factory paint on the leading edge. The dealer is talking about repair with no guarantees. Since the problem is obviously an inherent defect with either the steel or the preparation I fear it will continue to happen. My feeling is I should receive, at a minimum, a lifetime guarantee/warranty and preferably a new hood.
