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.

My vehicle has had the front brakes replaced twice in the 30,000 miles that I have put on the car. Under hard breaking the vibration and pulsating is so unnerving that I wonder if the car is going to fly off the chasis. I know numerous people on the GTO websites that have had similar problems.

My car has had numerous electrical problems which have been reported to the manufacturer. My main concern is an issue with the traction control/ABS that causes the car to show an error light and disable both the traction and ABS systems. The car has been to 2 Pontiac dealerships regarding the issue, it has been looked at 4 or 5 times, and there still has been no resolution. The manufacturer is refusing to buy the car back despite the failure of a touted safety system. The error occurs nearly every time I drive the vehicle, so the "number of failures" count is an estimate.
