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 6-cyl

2002 Pontiac Grand Am GT passlock fails and caused car not to start. Car not able to start until complete a 30 minute reset process. Could be very random, and therefore dangerous problem for GM car users. I have read countless similar complaints on the internet and think the GM and Pontiac should take immediate action before this systematic problems causes a tragedy.
