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.

The dash starting peeling up about 6 years ago and just keeps getting worse. GM needs some better glue.

I feel GM should check into this and see why the dash is peeling off. It very ugly. My car is still in good shape, except for the dash, makes it look like crap.

Grand Am SE 2.2L V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 28,000 miles

My grandfather bought me this car in Texas and is having it brought up to me. It has 28,000 miles on it but two days after he bought it and had been driving it to test it out, the dash started peeling up on him. He took it to the dealer and since the car is under warranty they ordered a whole new dash and are putting it in for free. My Grandfather said he knows the woman that owned it previosly and she says she had no problems with the vehicle and had no idea about the dash. It was a completely new problem.

Pontiac has very poor designing on these cars and they should back up their work and recall these and fix them....

problem #1

Grand Am GT 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 39,460 miles

Dash cover/padding began to peel up from corners near the windshield. Tried to glue down but pad/cover and dash itself covered in foam. Now the dash covering has peeled back about 4-5" deep and 18-20" long from each corner, stands up and partially obscures visibility out the windshield. This de lamination or peeling has occurred around the large gauges and down along the center console. Heard others had same problem, contacted Pontiac HQ but got no relief. Major eyesore, ugly and just pathetic interior condition. Did I mention it obscures visibility out the windshield? Does anyone know of any recourse for this defective material and craftsmanship?
