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 #2

Dec 012012

Grand Am GT1 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 144,000 miles


My car had replaced front brake pads in early 2012 from Big O Tires. Now I have been hearing a grinding, squeaking noise when pushing in on my brakes lightly or softly. When releasing on the brake, it seems like it sticks and the noise is just not pleasant to hear from the inside for my passengers (myself) nor anyone out near my car. I took back to the place where y brakes were fixed and they did not identify an issue; mainly because it's under warranty and they don't want to fix their own mistakes, -_- wish I knew about cars so I could fix it myself.

Grand Am SE 2.4L

I can't explain what causes this, but even with brand new brake pads, the brakes have always been squeaky on my Grand Am. It's been quite embarassing in some situations, such as when a young relative told me "Your car stops like a freight train!" I had the brakes re-inspected by a different mechanic than the one who installed the brake pads, and they did not see anything wrong.
