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

Not a safety precaution. I drive a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am. Every car that make and year model have broken hub caps, mine included. They rattle for a while then they break in half. There has got to be some sort of defect if it's just that make and model. The noise is embarrassing and annoying. I feel that the Pontiac company should look in to the problem and fix it. Also, rear middle seatbelt never stayed tight. Loosens very easily while my child is wearing it and when my child was in a car seat.

Hub caps are breaking apart without apparent cause. I've seen several Pontiac Grand Am with the same defect.
