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.

2004 Pontiac Bonneville Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 112007

Bonneville 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,023 miles


The contact owns a 2004 Pontiac Bonneville. While backing out of the driveway at 5 mph, the brake pedal extended to the floor and dangled when it was depressed. There was no resistance in the brakes. The vehicle continued moving, jumped a curb, and landed in her neighbor's yard. The vehicle was towed to a private mechanic. The cause of the failure was a failed pedal assembly retainer clip, which was replaced. The current mileage was 40,078 and failure mileage was 40,023. Updated 11/29/07.
