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.

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.

Headlamps for all vehicles: The newer blue, pink, purple colored headlights are blinding to light sensitive eyes. Bright lights are bad enough and then almost every vehicle has fog lights that people leave on all the time and are blinding. But, these new colored lights actually hurt light sensitive eyes & totally blind you for more than a second. First time I encountered it scared the heck out of me. More & more people I talk to have the same problem. In heavy traffic at night I have to wear my sunglasses which reduces my visibility. These lights need to be banned before there's a major accident caused by blinding.

When I was driving, don't know for sure the speed, the engine started to overheat the A/C started blowing hot air I stopped at an auto parts store and replaced a cooling sensor on the side of the engine. Some how it kept doing it only in the summer. Then not long after that my oil pressure light kept going on and off periodically. Either speeding up or going around corners it comes on dining and turning the light on. The oil pressure light started coming on just after an oil change. I've had it changed twice since then and its still happening. No one seems to know what it is.

Airbag lamp illuminates while vehicle is in operation. The driver information center displays an airbag malfunction message and has a warning chime. During this time the system is identifying that the airbag system is not operating. The issues seems to be related to the sensor in the front passenger seat. If the vehicle is shut off the error message and indicator lamp go away. This has been happening more frequently over the last year. In addition the driver information center sometimes fails to turn on with the vehicle, making it hard to tell when there is an issue with the vehicle. During this time the information screen/radio are not illuminated. This is corrected by shutting off and restarting the vehicle.

I work nights and noticed my tail lamps were really bright when I drove by reflective signs. Though I didn't think much at the time this continued. I stopped for gas one morning when I couldn't get my car from park to drive. I really had to mash the brakes down to get from park to drive. I recently was pulled over due to my tail lights not working correctly. The police officer noticed that my tail lights were lit up while driving and would turn off when I came to a stop at the light and when he pulled me over. He didn't ticket me but wanted to let my know about the issue. I looked for recalls and sure enough my 07 G6 was on the recall list but apparently it's VIN specific. I even took it to the local GM dealer, kerry Chevrolet, and they couldn't find any recalls with my car. The person at the dealer ship gave me GM's number and even they told me I probably shouldn't drive the car. Though all my issues are on the recall from the NHTSA campaign number 14V252000 my car is not included in the recall. Nor is the transmission cable thing. I won't go into this. This is a problem waiting to happen. GM should make this right and all inclusive for all model years that are affected by this not just VIN specific. I've been loyal to you for many years but maybe not for long!

While driving-the stop lights stay on, when the brakes are applied the lights go out. Have difficulty getting shifter out of park. Also speed control quit working. There is a recall for this problem-number 13036. It covers cars built between May 26. 2004 to Jan. 4 2010.[ my car was built May 2007 ]. when I called G. M. phone-800-553-6000. This is the Pontiac number. They said my serial number is not on the list.{ I don't understand }. this car has the exact problem that is addressed in this recall. Problem with the body control module. This is a safety issue--- I have had drivers blowing horns at me when I stop because my brake lights don't come on.--they stay on while driving. Hope you can help me. Thank you.

I have a 2007 Pontiac G6 sedan. It has had several electrical issues in the past but they are getting worse. The delay power to the lights and radio do not seem to function properly. The radio is to remain on until the driver door is opened. Well it now does not shut off at times. Sometimes it will "time out" after the 10 minutes if the ignition is turned off but once I turned off the car, locked the doors and assumed it would time out. The next morning I got in the car and the radio was still playing and the interior dome lights were on. I was amazed the battery wasn't dead. This has been happening more often is quite an annoyance to make sure the power is off when exiting the vehicle. Sometimes is requires me to open and shut the door several times to get the delay to cut off.

The car totally lost electrical power. My wife, daughter and two grand kids (1 & 4 yrs old) were in the car. The power windows had be acting up for a while but on this day all the power went out. After she controlled the car to a stop on the highway and waited 10 minutes it would start again. She then tried to drive back roads home. Only to have it happen multiple times again. Finally we had it towed to the dealer ship. And again they are saying there is no recall on this car. It will now cost us over $500 dollars to fix on top of the $2500 last time. The dealership in the past as been great but in this case have been of no help. Over $3000 dollar out without any compensation from GM or the dealer (betten / baker Chevrolet in coopersville, Michigan).

The car will intermittently loose the power steering. Usually when you first started it but at time while driving at any speed. If you stopped and restarted the car the power steering might start working. We spend over $2,500 to get this repaired and our dealership is claiming that there is no recall on the power steering. I currently have all the invoice of what they repaired or replaced.

Cooling fans fuses replaced because it was running hot. It started running hot a few years later and wiring to the cooling fans had to be fixed. Check engine light then came on and wouldn't go off and engine module was replaced. Check engine light came back on immediately, power steering randomly stopped working but came back, power seats stopped working randomly but started to work again, radio wouldn't go off after taking out the key and opening the door, and now the car will only go in reverse and drive in the manual mode. I'm never buying another GM vehicle!
