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.

The contact owns a 2009 Pontiac G5 coupe. The contact purchased the vehicle during the day time. When it became night time, he noticed that there was no interior lighting. The instrument panel and gear lights were the only working lights in the vehicle. He called the manufacturer and they stated that the vehicle was designed in that manner. The contact feels that it is a safety hazard to not have any interior lighting. The failure and current mileages were 4,000. Updated 6/4/09 the consumer stated the light would go out when the door was opened. Updated 06/09/09.
