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

Grand Am 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


I have a 2004 Grand Am. I bought it from a dealership used with approx. 36,000 miles on it. I have had it for only 4 months and have already replaced the ignition sensor, and have been told to replace the O2 sensor as well. Now the car randomly loses all power when driving at low speeds. This annoyance is accompanied with the car also not even turning over on some occasions. The car cannot be counted on. I'm taking it in for testing.
