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.

There's several issues with this car. First, the front right suspension is bad causing the car to shake. Second, I suddenly lost control of the car on the highway almost causing a severe accident while driving approximately 55-60 mph. It felt like the steering power was no longer working. Last, both back door locks stopped working a couple of months after I purchased the car. I always have to let down the window in order to manually unlock the doors. Most of these issues occurred at 46,000 miles.

I have a 2008 Pontiac G6, and while driving there is a knocking or sounds like something is loose on the left front suspension. They have replace the steering shaft, sway bar links, still having the problem. Had it to the dealer 3-times. I am afraid something will break and cause me to wreck. Can hear it gook hitting a pot hole in on the pavement or going down a gravel road that has pot holes. If something breaks and causes me to wreck, I will pursue if still available I will sue the dealership for not correcting this. I am tired of spending all my time at the dealership, they are suppose to have certified mechanics, but they don't take enough time to really fix the issue with my car.

At 38,500 miles, have had multiple problems with steering, including 2 steering shaft replacements, steering gear replacement. Power steering will fail at various times while turning at low speeds. There is also a loud pop which the dealer diagnosed as the steering shaft, but is never fixed after replacement. Also had to have cv joint replaced at 38,000 miles due to failure. This vehicle has never been wrecked or otherwise damaged. According to the dealer, these are very common problems with G6's and should be recalled.
