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.

The seat belt release disconnected several times. Dealership replaced the part repeatedly. Consumer was unsure if this was a design flaw.

Grand Am 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Every three months I ended up replacing brake pads and rotors on my 2001 Grand Am. Then one morning I was going to work traveling at the speed of around 60 mph when the car started to drift left uncontrollably. I ended up jerking the wheel to avoid a head-on collision, which resulted in a end to end roll over crash. At which time the part of the seat belt that you buckle in to broke causing me to become unbuckled and thrown to the back seat of the car.
