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.

2/23/2009: Leaving stop light, car quite running and I pulled to side of road. Could not restart the car. Car was towed to dealership. Found out car was out of gas, but gauge showed a little over a 1/4 tank. Dealership said gauge cluster was defective and changed the cluster. 7/12/2009: At 25 mph car quite running and I pulled to side of road. Car would not restart and I knew I was out of gas again. The gas gauge showed just under 1/4 tank. I got some gas and went to the gas station. The gas tank holds 19 gallons, but I only able to pump in less than 16 gallons. I think something is wrong with the fuel pickup, not the gauge. I was lucky that this did not happen during higher speeds and traffic.

The contact owns a 2009 Pontiac G8 GT. While driving various speeds, the contact felt a very rough vibration in the vehicle. The GM manufacturer stated that they were aware of the failure; however, there was nothing they could do to assist at that time. The dealer stated that there was nothing wrong with the vehicle and it was normal for a 6.0 liter engine. The contact was concerned with driving the vehicle in the snow due to the vibrations. The failure mileage was 11 and current mileage was 11,500. Updated 01-26-09 the vehicle also had a rough idle. The consumer stated the vehicle has poor fuel management. The air bag light illuminated. Updated 01/26/09.
