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.

2003 Pontiac Grand Am Owner Comments

problem #1

May 222003

Grand Am 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


On two separate occasions 2/14/2002 and 5/22/2003, my Grand Am locked its doors. The first occasion, the car was turned off, keys left in the car. When the driver's door closed, the doors locked. Had to have aaa open the door. Second occasion, my 4 1/2 month old baby was asleep in the back seat, the car was running, I put the car in park, unlocked the doors and got out for a minute, when the door closed, it and the passenger front door and driver's rear doors locked. The only one that remained unlocked was the passenger rear door. Luckily, one stayed open and my baby was asleep and didn't know what was going on. Very upset with GM at this point.
