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 #1

May 292007

(reported on)

Grand Am SE V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 147,000 miles


as i drive off in my car, my brake light will come on when my brake handle is definitely not up. Then my ABS light comes on right after, following with TRAC OFF but TRAC OFF will disappear but ABS & BRAKE lights stay on.

CHANGE OIL light comes on like a month after getting an oil change AND resetting the damn thing. (and listening to that CHANGE OIL chime everytime i start the car makes me LoCo)

SECURITY light issues too, now it doesn't even work LOW COOLANT when its full but when it IS low on coolant, the damn light doesn't work for sh*t!!

When my battery needed to be replaced for the third time with in three years thank goodness for warranties;i mean on the battery, my trunk would open itself whenever i would jumpstart my battery to get it going to get it replaced.

Speedometer arrows go haywire all the time; sometimes even when i'm driving. Sucks ass too

Alarm doesn't alarm when i press the button, the buttons on my power windows (except the one on the front passenger) dont work either

Button to lock my doors on the inside only lock one, maybe two (if im lucky) doors; never the same one or two.

My electrical system in my Pontiac is retarded.
