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.

The very same problems/issues are occurring with/in my 2001 Pontiac Grand Am. I am the only owner of my vehicle and have experienced every single issue others have wrote about. From the security issue to the driver side seat not moving at all..... GM really needs to research/investigate these matters and place re-calls on all of them asap. This is a very serious matter and apparently they are overlooking this completely.
