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.

2002 Pontiac Grand Am developed problems with the brakes and the emergency brake equipment. The vehicle stalled as the consumer backed out of the driveway when the vehicle was placed in drive. The emergency brake would hang up. The traction control light stayed on. There was an occasion when the consumer could not get the traction control to re-engage. The dealer claimed to have found nothing. The rotors were replaced along with the emergency brake pads which was stated to be beyond specifications. Three loud bangs had come from the left rear wheel. The consumer experienced numerous electrical problems and oil leaks.
