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.

I have just received my fourth recall notice only on my 2007 Pontiac G-6. I have twice spoken with someone about the importance of this matter, and when they thought it may be fixed. I have concerns on this as the car does have to be used on a daily basis, and occasional 350 mile round trip. I am not very dissatisfied with the way this is being handled, I do not want to see another notice of the recall, I want it fixed !!! I would think this time frame should not have to go by when a safety issue is at risk. Safety recall#14152 and 13036 I plan to report this issue to whom it concerns.

Upon accelerating at speeds above 50mph, my traction control indicator will come on, sometimes saying traction off, and sometimes saying to service traction. It will sometimes stay on and make my car jerk around a lot while it's shifting gears. If it doesn't go away shortly after it came on, it will go away once I leave my car turned off for a while. It happens so randomly, and sometimes will be months between episodes, that when I've taken it to have it looked at, they can't get it to happen.

  • 82,300 miles
"transmission shifter cable; brake lights, air bag passenger side, ignition" shifter intermittently hangs up when shifting. Called dealership first was told they had no recall for that VIN number, that nothing was on file. Then when I read him the notice I received today he said that I was to wait until they had parts. I felt uncomfortable driving this car and asked for a loaner. I was told there was nothing he could do. (service dept.) called Pontiac cs. 800 762 2737 I was told after explaining my problem that it was the dealerships discretion as to whether to provide a loaner. She talked to dealership, came back and then asked me how many mi was on car. 82K then she talked to dealer again and she comes back and tells me they need to check it and provide me with an estimate for repairs then I am to call the Pontiac customer serv back with the estimate. "??????? so I am still driving a car that I don't feel comfortable with because they need an itemized bill of repair? is this the process for a recall? I definitely will not take it to "that dealership" for an inspection as now I do not trust them as their computers had no recalls or repair reports for my car at all.. recall no. 14152 transmission cable I was provided with a case no. And told to call Pontiac cs back. P.S. so is this part of the ignition switch and brake lights intermittently coming on while driving down the road also I am confused????"
