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.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,566 miles
2003 Grand Am GT purchased in May 2003. Car will accelerate from idle speed of 4-6mph to 15 mph without depressing the accelerator causing the car to jump forward without warning. Started to occur at 1500 miles, now 3600 miles on the car, has been at the dealership 3 times with no resolution. Also will not accelerate when attempting to pass at speeds from 50mph, accelerator depressed to the floor without resulting change evidenced by increase in RPM or speed of the vehicle. Also dangerous. As of today, the car is at the dealership, they have not been able to duplicate the problem and are seeking advice from Pontiac.
