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 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100 miles


The consumer owns a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am. Consumer states that he is hearing a scrapping metal noise with the front brakes. The consumer has replaced the rotors, pads and is still hearing this noise. Consumer took the vehicle to the dealer and they have not been able to fix the problem. Consumer contacted GM and they said the front tires needed to be replaced and the air pressure needed to be changed, however, this did not do any good. Consumer talked to about 20 people that owns the same vehicle with different model years, but doing the same thing. Consumer does have service invoices available.
