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.

I got the car in October 2009, was perfectly fine, and then recently just paid the car off in october and all hell broke loose. I just put 4 brand new tires on, brake, rotors, oil change, muffler and inspection. Now my electric in my car isnt working properly. My ABS ETS and AIR BAG light is on, as well as having 4 inches of water on the passanger and drivers side front and back. It looks as tho my car runs thru a lake every night so i can scoop the water out every morning with a bunch of towels. I have taken my car to the dealer and they havent found the problem they put silicon around the windshield and tried to block it from the floor but everytime it rains the water ends up all inside on my floor.

PLEASE help me with this problem. It is so cold in PA and in the mornings since the waters in the car it turns to ice, and the windshield on the inside freezes where i have to end up scraping the inside just to see.

I was very pissed off that my car has this problem on top of everything else that was fixed on it. I paid around $2,800.00 and the repairs on it was equal or more to this price. I am just really pissed off at the problems this car has had!

It was annoying to learn that I had a hot tub in the rear passenger flooring but the real pain part came when I tried to deal with Pontiac's Customer Service area. Not only could no one get my name right (another family member also has a Pontiac Grand Am - different year), but I was told that my problem was due to "normal" wear and tear. (Water sheets off of the windshield, gets through a seal and settles in the rear passenger flooring because it is the lowest part of the chassis). I have owned cars with more than twice my mileage and have never encountered this problem before. To add insult to injury, they wanted me to cover the cost because it was "normal" wear and tear - to the tune of $325.

In my estimation, Pontiac does not stand by their product - I would not recommend them to any of my family, colleagues or friends.
