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.

problem #1

Grand Am SE

  • 150,000 miles

This car is driving me up the wall. It has so many problems after having it for a while. I wont purchase another Grand Am ever because the manufacturer needs to come up with a way to design a car that won't have as many defects. This car is pitiful and its costing me thousands to keep it running. I would recommend to anyone that's looking fro a car, do not get a Pontaic Grand Am, or you will regret it in the future.
