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.

  • 87,000 miles


Let me forewarn anyone is going to buy a Grand AM that has the twin-cam overhead motor. When the motor gets about 85,000-87,000 miles on it, they blown up on you. Yes there is a way to tell if there is a problem, the car will have a very loud knocking noise whenever the car is started. Your best advise is to stay away from this motor unless you like buying new(er) motors for this car. I am from up north originally, and this motor runs about $1,000 if your lucky. Just please be careful when buying these cars.
