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

Dec 262006

GTO 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 31,425 miles


Had trouble with clutch. Popping out of gear, hard going into gear, loss of clutch peddle, loud roaring sound that would go away when to pressed in the clutch but would return when the clutch peddle was released. Dealer replaced clutch, vehicle still pops out of gear on 4 and 5 gear. Vehicle shakes some and still has a loud roaring sound that will go away when the clutch is pressed in but still comes back when the clutch is released. Dealer stated the drive shaft was out of round. They replaced the drive shaft, but it did not change anything. Still having trouble with clutch, roaring sound.
