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.

My name is william watts, I have a 2003 Grand Am, I recently came back from a funeral in Mississippi going back to St. Louis mo, 3/4 of the way my car stopped, after 3 hours of waiting it was determined that my fuel pump had went out, how can a car 2 years old have a fuel pump go out, I also have friends that also say there security system is causing there fuel pumps to shut-down, why does these things happen to a car that is no older than two years, please investigate and add to your recall list, I had to get my car towed 113 miles, and paid $560 to have fuel pump replaced, I do not feel this is right, I feel that a car should last over 5 years before it breaks down

Purchased brand new 2003 Pontiac Grand Am on July 14, 2003. Fuel pump failed two weeks later, leaving owners stranded and in need of a tow. Fuel pump was replaced, but there was 0 pressure to the fuel. After diagnostics, found loose wire at ignition module. Tightened. Car runs now.
