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

The multi-function switch on my 2002 Pontiac Grand Am failed in November 2005. The turn signals would not always work, the indicator for the hazard lights would come on in the car and there was a constant clicking noise. I had the switch replaced at a cost of $323 because the dealer told me that eventually both the turn signals and hazard switch would become inoperable. I received a service notice in April, 2006 (#04098) which indicated that the repair would be covered. However, only the hazard switch replacement is covered, not the replacement of the multi function switch. So, even though the failure of the multi function switch caused the same dangerous situation of turn signal/hazard light failure, GM is opting not to cover the cost. Does this make sense to you?
