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.

2009 Pontiac G8 Owner Comments

2009 Pontiac G8. Auto veers to the right, need to keep pull ing down on left side of steering wheel to go straight. GM rep claims G8 was made to pull to the right if driver fell asleep preventing head on collisions. Three dealers unable to correct problem. GM rep states that the G8 was intentionally designed to veer to the right if driver fell asleep, which could cause car to go on sidewalk, etc. And injure people. GM refuses to repurchase vehicle. They offered to give us 4 new tires and extended warranty 60,000 add. Miles, for a car that they claim has nothing wrong with it. The car has been in shops for 28 days, since 3-26-09 purchase. Replacing strut bearings, balance & rotated tires, aligned front end, with no change. Took the car to 2 other Pontiac dealers drove & found it veered to right and both attempted to correct the problem without success. Also engine light comes on, gas cap vibrates loose by itself. Dealer tightened cap and did smoke test which should no leaks. Car requires new gas cap.
