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

Jan 262007

Grand Am 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 55,000 miles


A few times, as I engaged the clutch, I felt a tugging; I thought I had caught the toe of my shoe on the floor mat. Within a couple of weeks, I was driving and the clutch pedal grabbed to the floor and would not come up. When I had the car towed, they said that the cable between the clutch and pedal had disengaged; however, there were no broken parts. Within a week of the company putting the cable back in place, the same thing happened again. At 3.5 years and 55,000 miles, I had to replace the master clutch cylinder because the cable was "getting hooked up" in the cylinder.
