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.

1999 Pontiac Grand Am Owner Comments

problem #2

Nov 052008

Grand Am SE 2.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 89,000 miles


Cheap plastic guides snap off on the regulators causing the window to fall to the bottom of the door. The whole unit must be replaced not just the clips. On the bright side the door comes apart easily so you can put a brace inside to hold the window in the up position.

problem #1

(reported on)

Grand Am GT

  • 50,000 miles

Shortly after buying my used but still fairly new grand am gt, I was getting window tint put on and the window regulator broke, those flimsy little plastic parts are not worth a damn. About 4 months later in the wintertime the other window regulator broke on the opposite door, well I was 30 miles from home and had to drive all the way with my window down in 30 degree weather to borrow another car.
