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

Apr 122007

Grand Am 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 88,000 miles


Failure of driver seat actuators on my 2003 Pontiac Grand Am. The seat would actually move from front to back even when the car was parked, a serious safety hazard. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 571.207 states each seat shall remain in its adjusted position when tested in accordance with the test procedure in also included in this standard are seat adjusters, which the standard defines as the part of the seat that provides forward and rearward positioning of the seat. My seat did not meet this legal requirement. Pontiac has declined to reimburse the $379.15 repair cost.
