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.

Grand Am GT V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 96,000 miles


The ABS and Brake like both came on at the same time. From what I can figure it is that the sensor is dirty. If I hold the brake down when I start the car, all the lights go off like normal, but once I release the brake and start to back out of my drive it stays off until I turn my wheel and land flat on the street. If I don't hold the brake when I start the car, it just comes on regardless.

I just got the car on the 3rd of June. Didn't even have it for 4 days and didn't even put 130 miles on it when all of a sudden my check engine light kept on coming on then the ABS and Brake lights were next. followed by every other light on the console. Was trying to make it to the nearest Autozone but then my speedometer and rpm went flat then poof. My car died right on top of the stupid hill by the Autozone store... Pain in the ass too push it 2 miles with a toddler in the car.

Meineke in Lexington, KY off NEW circle Road, I bought my car to these&%*$# and told them I need my rotors and brakes replaced. They said my front brakes are fine they replaced the back brakes and when I got the car back my off trac light came on the next day and has stayed on ever since. They told me to get the front left wheel sensor replaced, kind of strange that a new problem occurred and they were willing to fix it for 350+ dollars. They broke my car
