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

Dec 262006

(reported on)

Grand Am SE 2.4L 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles


The adjustment handle on the left side of the driver's seat was stepped on by a friend getting out of the car. It snapped off because they used very cheap plastic to make the part. A few months later I was finally able to reposition the seat (it was straight up when the handle broke which made driving very uncomfortable). I have looked into getting it fixed, but I would pretty much have to get a new seat, which isn't worth the cost. Why can't they use better materials that are less prone to breaking? In the same car the plastic switch on the back of the passenger seat that moves the seat forward broke off leaving a metal stub. Great design Pontiac!
