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 Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 102003

Grand Am 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,000 miles


I have had my car in the shop several times for problems and they can typically replicate the problem, but cannot fix it. I have had 3 brake jobs on my car, as well as the calipers rebuilt, and my brakes still do not work right. The ABS system fails constantly. I experience slides on dry surfaces even. I also have transmission, coolant, and fueling problems. I have had a fuel pump replaced finally, after the 3rd time of taking it in for not starting, 2 times prior there was nothing supposedly wrong. Also, I am still getting only 125 miles on a tank of gas. They an reciprocate the problem but will not fix it. I also keep getting a low coolant and check engine message lights but they say nothing wrong. The power windows also drag and make marks on the window surfaces. They are very slow rolling up. The light in the radio area fades in and out, and the radio goes off and on alot as well as only the front speakers work primarily. Back do not. Accelerator pedal sticks, and causes car to rev up to 5000 rpms very scary!
