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.

2001 Pontiac Firebird Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 232001

Firebird 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 196 miles


The front rotors/brakes have been replaced 5 times since I got the car. The first time was when the car had 196 miles on it, and have been replaced about every 8,000 to 12,000. They have been replaced about 2,000 miles ago and the front end is vibrating again now. The car has 45,000 miles on it bought and extended warranty for 60,000 miles. The left front tire has locked up two times while driving, causing the car to spin across four lanes, the first time and doing a 180 while on an on ramp right after leaving long Pontiac of chattanooga. Ever time I take the car to them they just tell me that they can not duplicate the problem and tell me it is ok.
