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
  • 68,000 miles


When the car is running and the a/c or heat gets turned on while the car is stationary but on it comsumes the car w/ a gas smell. Even in the drive-thru! I"m not sure what is causing this. It has done it since I bought the car. I'm worried it will make my children or myself sick?!?

Every time we get in our car and start it and turn on the heater we get a gas smell throughout our car. This only happens when we start the car with the heater on. We also have an annoying on and off clicking sound even when our turn signal isnt on.
