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.

I called Pontiac to try to get some help regarding the fact that my car is only 5 years old and with the last 2 months side mirrors have busted off and both window regulators have broken as well along with the clearcoat chipping and leaving my paint exposed to the elements. Pontiac pretty much told me "sorry, not our problem" because I bought the car used (I am the second owner), because I did not buy the extended warranty, and because it's over 70000 miles. I have done my research and found that these are all common problems with this make and model. Pontiac should really be taking responsibility for making a less-than-desirable product.
