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.

2001 Pontiac Grand Am has problems cranking. Ignition turns over but engine will not crank until 3-4 tries. Does not do it on a consistent basis and dealership has not been able to duplicate problem. It has been in 4 times for this problem and 4 times because the back doors will not open some times without bumping the doors with your hip. Dealership was not able to duplicate problem. Also, rearview mirror fell off, side mirrors had to be replaced because clear coat was left off, door reflector fell off, weather strip on window fell off, blinkers stopped working. Despite the fact that this car is well taken care of, it is coming apart at the seams. Pontiac rep has been contacted answer is the same, we have to duplicate problem. It has now began stalling out after you get it cranked. I am now contacting GM/BBB as a last resort. Please help me if you can.
