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.

2008 Pontiac G5 Owner Comments

Front left driver door speaker in my car will stop working when it rains and has to be replaced. There is a design flaw with this car because the door has a drain tube that is right over the speaker connection and will cause the speaker to short circuit. I normally wouldn't complain about this defect but the front driver door speaker is what is used for the warning and safety chimes that the car is supposed to make when you start your vehicle and while you use it. Now that my speaker needs to be replaced, I have no turn signal sounds, no warning chimes when I start my car to remind me to put on my seatbelt, no warning sound that I've left my key in the ignition, and if my power steering were to go out I'd have no audible warning tone. Very unsafe!
