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.

While driving lost ALL power, rolling car to stop on freeway shoulder, at 36,000 miles. Again this weekend after it was replaced, loss all acceleration on freeway having to stop on shoulder divder, only 10 miles later. Has any body had this same problem wtih their G/am? My grand am has had many small pain in the ass problems, like radio buttons peeling off, dome light sticking on.
