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 ignition lock cylinder is bad. This is an ongoing problem with the Pontiac GTO's. GM needs to stand up and take responsibility to this problem. I'm being told my part wont be in into December this is unacceptable. Please investigate I do believe this is a safety issue as well. Thanks.
