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.

I purchased a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am from car corner dealer in roanoke rapids, nc 27870 on or about 10/9/05. I have had the car for 1 month and the ignition system locked up. I was informed by a person the dealer sent to work on the vehicle that he was called to another incident recently it the same problem with a car that was purchased from this dealership. At this time the person stated that it was a recall on the same problem I am experiencing with my vehicle. I contacted Pontiac and they stated that there is no recall on the vehicle problem. I was told by the dealer that he is not going to be full responsible for the repairs of the problem with the ignition system. What rights I have at this point. I am seeking help with this matter.
