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.

I have a 2001 boneville sle. I have had problems with the right tire end rod being replaced at 20,000 miles. I'm having the same problem with the left tire end rod the car has 41,000 miles. Also the sealed wheel bearing needs to be replaced at 41,000 miles. The car is 5,000 miles over the manufacture's warranty and I have to pay for this. I was told by the service manager that Pontiac will reimburse 75% of the cost. The car is only two years old. It should not have these problems!
