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.

The dashboard is cracked and rolling up around the windshield. There's vents that pop out all the time too. I'm short, so it's a little hard to see over it. Yes, it was like that when I bought it used from the dealership, but it wasn't even close to being as horrible as it is now. Hindsight is always 20/20, huh? Of course, now that it's an issue, there's no warranty left. I don't have the money to replace it. Ugh! Always something with this vehicle! !!!

I am trying to find a resolution but apparently other owners of Grand Ams are experiencing the same issue. I would like to find a way to fix it that I can afford. Any suggestions?

I have the same problem with my 2004 Grand Am. The dash started curling up and the heater vents started popping out. The company was not very receptive to my complaint, I was told the car was out of warranty, They finally did offer to split the cost for me, but I did not have the $700 to have it fixed. When I do finally get another car, it will not be a car manufactured by this company. I have been driving a long time and never had this happen. I now live in North Carolina and I am not sure what is going to happen when I need my heating/defrost to work this winter. WORST CAR I EVER HAD with no help from the company.

I think its terrible that a car that was only 5 yrs old and has a dashboard that is curling up all along window and heater vent cracked and broke off because its all curled up. So buyer be where.

Grand Am V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 36,000 miles

Dash began peeling back at the windshield shortly after new warranty expired. Now it it so warped that it is cracking and breaking every vent cover, or it pops them out as you drive! (NOT fun late at night when you get hit by who knows what in the dark!)

My latest concern ~ recently it has separated above the steering column, exposing the wiring (incl. airbag) inside to dust, moisture, etc.

Local dealer says this would have been covered under original warranty, but not under GM extended Major Guard. :-( They made me a 'deal' at cost to replace it for $700.

GM corporate office declined to help, other than offer $1,000 towards cost of a new vehicle....which at the time was a promotion available to anyone!!
