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.

Thanks, this website saved me a bill for towing and a computer testl! We were saving the car for our son who will be 16 in two weeks. If this is just the beginning of the problems I don't know if it is a car I feel safe having him depend on. Turning the key to the on position and waiting 10 minutes worked. I've loved my Pontiac until now!!!

Grand Am SE V6

  • Automatic transmission

I went out to start my car for work last Friday and for no apparent reason it wouldn't start. I had to get a friend to drive me to work. I tried all weekend to start it with no luck. It acted like there was no gas in it but it had half a tank. I called to have it towed. The mechanic called me and told me that when he got it to the garage it started!!!! What a pain!!! He put it on the computer and told me that nothing was coming up to explain why it wouldn't start. I've read all of the other complaints on here and it seems that this is a common problem with Grand Ams. There was no warning that this was coming. The check engine soon light came on AFTER the fact. I am driving this car over a 1,000 miles in about 3 weeks and I am scared that this is going to happen while on the road.
