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

  • 198,000 miles
We began having problems starting our car, the security light was on and stayed on. Some days it would start and others it wouldn't and then it eventually would not start at all. After being in the shop for a week and stumping the mechanics, we still have not solved the issue. Everything has been checked from the fuel pump to the sensors and they all tested good. Our ignition went bad and since we had it replaced it has been bad. This car has left us stranded places with three small kids. We have to leave the key in the on position for about ten minutes then turn to off then start and sometimes it takes three or four times before it works.
