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 Owner Comments

I bought a used 2001 Pontiac Grand Am in February 2002. The cruise control went out on the car in January 2003. After numerous attempts to get this fixed at the dealer I finally gave up. Shortly afterwards the fuel pump had to be replaced (spring 2003). Since that time I've had to replace the fuel pump twice last fall. Now its gone out again. What can I do? the car has an evident electrical problem.

First the speed sensor malfunctioned. Then, the speed sensor hub malfunctioned within one year time limit. These sensors had an effect on the anti lock braking system which did not work when sensors failed. Cruise control will not work because it made the brake light come on. Took vehicle in to see what was wrong. Dealer did not solve the problem.
