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.

Takata recall for about a month now my vehicle has been randomly dying. I was on the highway when suddenly everything locked up I couldn't stop, couldn't brake, the engine seized and I was unable to restart the car. The steering wheel was moving in both directions by itself, then locked up. I had to get out and push the car into a safe place and was unable to re-start it.

I purchased the care in 8/2015 and this past week the power steering started flashing on the message board and then the power steering went out while I was driving. When I shut the vehicle off it works again but locks so while I am driving it. I would never have purchased this vehicle if I would have know the power steering could be an issue.

I have had this car since 2009. One of the first problems I noticed was what seemed to be electrical with the lights in the car going dim for a bit, then kicking back in. This only happens every so often. Low beam headlight on driver side keeps going out, even when putting a new light in. Passenger side window is the only window that works at all times. All three other windows are inoperable and have been for years. Automatic transmission will jerk while shifting gears. Feels like I am driving a stick shift vehicle, but this indeed a automatic. This has been going on for several years as well. Back break lights constantly stayed on. They would go off for a few seconds when you press on the breaks and release, but then would come back on right away while accelerating. --this was a recall that has been fixed--

I was driving, came to a light, power steering went out. I thought it was just low on fluid, but found out electric power assist. Looked on line to find remedy and found that this is a well documented problem that both Pontiac and GM are well aware of. Instead of tackling the problem head on the side skirt the problem with 90 day or less windows of culpability knowing full well the problem is much more widespread than they acknowledge. It's a shame I have to come here to cry to try and make Pontiac and GM take responsibility for their engineering disasters!!

I was driving did not have any problems until I came up to a red light. I went in to the left turning lane. When the turning lane light changed to green I was unable to turn my car. My steering wheel became very stiff. Almost caused me to crash. Turns out my power steering pump went bad. Took a matter of maybe 5 minutes. Car turned fine a few minutes before.

When driving my Pontiac G6 there appears to be a slight clunk coming from the front steering system. On turns the same clunk happens and you can feel it ever so slightly on the steering wheel. The steering is very tight while driving but as soon as I'm stopped it loosens up noticeably. After doing some research about the car I've found that this model is a candidate for a recall involving the U-joints, which seems to be where the clunk is occurring from.

Since I bought this Pontiac back in 2009, it had a loud clunking and steering sound in the front end which got worse over the years. I can feel the noise vibrate in the steering wheel and it doesn┐T feel safe. The GM dealer said, ┐it's nothing to worry about.┐ I had them check it out and they claim it's fine. I did online research and apparently other GM Pontiac owners are having the same complaint. This is unacceptable. Why won┐T GM fix this?

I was driving home going 65 mph down a major highway on a clear warm night. All of a sudden my 2007 Pontiac G6 pulled to the right and I couldn't correct it. When the car finally responded, I was thrown across the highway into the divider cables. My airbags didn't deploy and the entire front end was crushed. Thank goodness I was not around any of the semi-trucks that came up over the small hill behind me once I limped the car to the side of the road. I had to get the car towed and insurance totalled it out without any testing done. After reading on this site, it's sad to see that I'm not the only one this has happened to. Thank god I was not seriously injured.
