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.

Grand Am 3.4

For the most part this car has been great until it was finally paid off. Then a knob feel off, and then the turn signal decided to work only if it felt like it, then I noticed in the drive thur my car was running hot. I had my master mechanic buddy check it out and we found out its a possible relay problem...all of these have yet to be fixed. And then a few weeks ago the check engine came on and the code was that the car was now running too cold. So today we are Flushing the coolant and replacing the thermostat. I'm lucky to have the labor be free and the parts were pretty cheep $18 for the thermostat, $12 for the coolant looked like we could replace a coolant bypass hose that looked corroded $7 flush $3 distilled water $4 new drain plug $4 or $5 total about $50 and maybe take my guy out to dinner for his time.
