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

  • 47,000 miles

MY 2002 GRAND AM GT HAS BEEN TO THE GARAGE FOUR TIMES FOR ABS/WHEEL PROBLEMS. UNTIL NOW THE WORK HAS BEEN COVERED UNDER WARRANTY BUT FOR A NEW WHEEL BEARING ON THE LEFT SIDE IT COST ME $400, WITH 47,000 MILES ON THE CAR. THE DEALER ALREADY REPLACED THE RIGHT SIDE BEARING AND HAD TO PUT ON A NEW CALIPER UNDER WARRANTY. GMAC WON'T STAND BEHIND THE CAR BECAUSE I COULD HAVE BOUGHT AN EXTENDED WARRANTY. WHAT'S T THE SINCE OF PAYING $22,000 FOR A CAR IF IT'S A PIECE OF SH*T AT LESS THAN $50,000 MILES. THEY TELL ME I HAVE TO EXPECT TO SINK MONEY INTO MY VEHICLE. SORRY BUT EVERY OTHER CAR I HAVE OWNED, I NEVER HAD TO TAKE TO THE GARAGE OTHER THAN FOR ROUTINE SERVICE. THE CAR HAS BEEN FOR OTHER THINGS: 1. MOLDING FELL OF FRONT RIGHT SIDE, MISFIRE IN THE 6TH CYLINDER. THESE THINGS WERE FIXED UNDER WARRANTY BUT I STILL FEEL LIKE THE CARS A LEMON! NEITHER THE GARAGE/DEALER OR GMAC HAS BEEN ANY HELP. NOW THAT THE WARRANTY IS UP, I'M JUST SUPPOSED TO SUCK IT UP I GUESS. I WON'T BE PUTTING MUCH MORE MONEY INTO IT, CAUSE IT'S HEADED DOWN THE ROAD. IF ANYONE ELSE HAS HAD THESE PROBLEMS I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW ABOUT THEM.
