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.

In Feb 2010 we had just bought it from a dealership w/o warranty then not that long after we had bought it started leaking radiator fluid we had it looked at by a Pontiac dealer while they did a recall on it they said it needed lower intake gaskets replaced it would cost around $900.00 dollars to fix was steaming pissed i just bought it but it a huge problem with these motors because there plastic gaskets and when they heat the end up cracking i think GM should fix every f*cking one of those gaskets that bullshit that the recall is over so i thought i would complain on here
