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.

The contact owns a 2009 Pontiac G8. The contact stated that the brake lights erroneously illuminated. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was found that the brake light switch needed to be replaced. The dealer also informed the contact that the vehicle was not included in NHTSA campaign number 09V172000 (service brakes, air, tires). The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was contacted about the failure. The failure mileage was 68,000. Updated 04/29/14

Michelin Pilot sport A/S plus are "chunking" rubber separation. I purchased my Michelin Pilot A/S plus from discount tires in December 2011(34,030 mi). Michelin states a 45K mi warranty on these tires. I've rotated them every 5-6K mi. Right now I've driven on them 22K miles. I went to discount tire (1/27/2014) and they said the front tires are "chunking". you can see tire separation from the layers of rubber. The asst mgr advised me he has seen this with the Michelin's Pilot A/S plus and they would prorate me for some new tires. To me this is a defect and should be a full replacement at 100% Michelin's expenses. Please please! investigate these tires.

I purchased a 2009 Pontiac G8 GT in September. I live in southeast Michigan. According the Pontiac website www.Pontiac.com/G8-2009/specs-features my vehicle was equipped (standard equipment) with all-season tires. My particular vehicle has summer only tires, making it unsafe to drive in the winter months. There is no mention of this dangerous restriction on my vehicle or window sticker or dealer paperwork. Luckily I realized this before driving in winter conditions which easily could have lead to a serious crash.
