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.

2004 Pontiac GTO Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 232005

GTO 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4,023 miles


Temperature gauge faulty. Driving at 50 mph and temperature gauge went to hot for 10 seconds then slowly went back down to normal. Engine isn't overheating because all fluids have been checked. Believe problem to be electronic related. This has occurred on two separate occasions. First incident engine was cold and car was stationary.
