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 #3

Bought a 2002 Pontiac Bonneville 3 months ago. Within the month had to replace the left & right rear trailing arms at $700. Car seems to have a fuel pump problem because it doesn't always start-up feels like it is chocking. Lastly this past week as I turn left and sometimes right there is a popping noise like front bearings or tie rods. Is there a recall on any information stated above I would like to know.

Loud clunk when turning sharply while using brake. Both left and right turning. Heard clearly and felt through the floorboard of car. Seems to be worse when driving through rain conditions. Does not occur when turns do not involve use of brakes. Local Pontiac dealer, "gary matthews of jackson" refuses to provide warranty service, because car was not purchased at GM dealership. Claims car was in accident - not true according to "" and independent inspections of vehicle structure.
