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 ES

  • 30,000 miles

I bought the car used in December of 2002 with 28,000 miles. I had trouble right from the get go. I have had it in to Jim Lupient Olds (St. Louis Park, MN) 5 times. Now.....they say they found the problem......replaced brake switch twice because they thought that was why it wouldn't shift out of park. Now they have put in a new shift because the button would not release when you would put your foot on the brake.......therefore, guess who was stuck in the garage and couldn't get out until it decided to release on its own!!!!!

Well everyone, thank you for listening.
