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.

1998 Pontiac Grand Am Owner Comments

Front right lugs sheared off clean completely, causing the wheel & tire to drop and putting the auto to the pavement on it's front. Rail and rotor and spinning the auto somewhat. Pontiac refuses to cover under warranty saying they don't know what caused it, but it wasn't their fault. It took them 1 month to decide than leaving the auto unrepaired at the dealership, and caused me to rent an automobile. Then finally paid myself to get the car back in use. Loss of 1 mo. Use, had to pay the month's lease even though car was not driveable, and when they fixed it, they did it in 4 hours!
