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.

2002 Pontiac Bonneville Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 212010


  • 85,000 miles


I have two GM vehicles that exhibit the same dangerous condition of sudden acceleration. This condition occurs every time the vehicle is started after being turned off. Upon re-start of the vehicle, the accelerator pedal (and /or throttle assembly) is stuck and it requires a large amount of force to depress the pedal, causing a rapid change in vehicle speed from a stopped condition to a very quickly accelerating vehicle. After you "break through" this first "sticking" of the pedal, the throttle assembly functions fine, until you turn the vehicle off and restart again. Vehicles affected are 1999 Chevrolet astro van and 2002 Pontiac Bonneville.
