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.

1998 Pontiac Firebird Owner Comments

I was driving and saw a deer; put on brakes making them sound, deer hit front end of car tearing off left headlight assembly and mangling inside of light; also pushed the left front quarter panel toward the driver's door with minor dent in that section. Took car to dealer next morning and received estimate. During the next few days noticed that the seat felt like it was loose when turning sharp curves and would make a thump sound. Car in for repairs. Dealer has stated that the accident could not have caused the seat to become loose in its tracks. Bolts are tight.
