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.

Aug 012014


  • 87,000 miles


The contact owns a 2009 Pontiac G5. While driving various speeds, the vehicle would suddenly lose power before stalling. The failure occurred on multiple occasions. The contact also indicated that when lifting off the accelerator pedal, the vehicle would not respond for approximately 2 to 3 seconds and the speed would remain the same before the vehicle would decelerate. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who diagnosed that the crank sensor was faulty. The crank sensor was replaced, but the failure recurred. The contact examined the vehicle and discovered that the crank sensor connector wire was faulty. The vehicle was not repaired and the manufacturer was not notified. The failure mileage was 87,000.
