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.

2005 Pontiac GTO Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 062008

GTO 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 23,000 miles


I purchased the 2005 Pontiac GTO used in 2007. It had 13,000 miles. I rotated the tires myself at 17,500 miles. I noticed slight rub on strut tower and unusual wear - minor accelerated wear on inner edges, feathering of tread. At approximately 21,000 miles, I had an alignment done. At 23,000, I noticed extensive wear on the inner edge (cord showing on all 4 tires). I suspect the original owner had camber set to positive value to prevent rub/wear. When I had the alignment done, the rubbing resumed. Of course, dealership denied the rubbing.
