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.

2000 Pontiac Grand Am Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 182007

(reported on)

Grand Am ES 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 39,000 miles


The fuel gauge has become so unreliable we don't even use it anymore! Whenever we go anywhere, we always have to stop for gas on our way home... so we know we have gas. When the problem first happened, the car wouldn't start... even though the gas gauge said we had a quarter tank! It cost us $75 to find out we just needed gas! Since then, the accuracy has just gotten worse! It now runs out of gas when the gage is between 1/2 and 3/4 of a tank!

To add insult to injury, I can't find any information about the problem. I don't even know if there is a procedure to "Reset" the gas gauge or if there is an "Adjustment" for it! I used to like Pontiac's!
