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

  • 98,000 miles


I have a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE and have replaced numerous parts and most recently dropped $300 to put a new fuel pump in it. The car will still not start. It turns over and everything but will not start. I have not been able to start it for over a week now and have been told that it is a problem with the security passlock system. I feel that there should be a recall on this issue by GM seeing that it is a well known issue with their vehicles.

I never received the recall on the exterior flashers. Had to have interior and exterior flashers changed at my expense. Also have had rotors and brakes changed 6 times in last 1 1/2 yrs. Was told its a problem but not on recall list.

My 2001 Grand Am SE hit around 98,000 kms and has been revving at 2,500 to 3,000 rpms while idling and while driving over revs and you need two feet on the brake. Have replaced intake manifold, one sensor, one valve, and $1,000 later my car still does the same. This is not safe while transporting children and with winter coming it should make for a scary ride.

2001 Pontiac Grand Am has 52,000 miles and has recently been difficult to start. I may have to try 5-6 times before engine will turn over. Yesterday the car died while going on an exit ramp off of the interstate. All lights were still functioning, but the car was dead and did not restart. I added 1 gal of gas to make sure it has enough although guage did not indicate low gas. I had the car towed to the dealership where it finally started. The dealer did a thorough check diagnostically and driving and could not find any problem. First time car has died while driving but has had several (10) instances of not starting in the past 2 months. This is a very big concern since my 20 year old daughter depends on this car for long drives frequently while in college. This could be a very big safety concern if car continues to die while driving!
