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.

2004 Pontiac Grand Am Owner Comments

problem #3

May 012015

Grand Am GT 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles


My car is overheating, my mechanic informed me that the Dextral antifreeze has always been a problem with the Grand Am and they never fixed this problem so the head gaskets get bad. This is wrong and you should be told this instead of finding out the hard and expensive way. I love my car but unsure if I am going to keep it due to this problem. Angry is what I am.

Grand Am GT 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 78,600 miles

This is a problem that GM has known about since the mid 80s.

My V6 Pontiac Fiero had it's manifold gaskets replaced twice

A class action law suit was settled in 2008 concerning this problem.

From my research on the web, this is a huge problem with many people affected.

I want the costs re-imbursed and I want there to be a recall.
