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 SE

Head gasket leaked producing a low coolant warning, pools of coolant on the engine. dealer said it was factory defect on 3.4L V6, replaced with new head gasket. Dealer covered all costs. Valid for all 3.4L V6 cars/vans with low mileage regardless of year
