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 #2

Feb 012010

Grand Am SE 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 106,000 miles


This is the last straw, after spending over 600 dollars on a wheel baring not even a month ago, and already having rattling in the front, I now have this problem to deal with as well. It's a pain in the butt. I'm trading my beloved grand am in for something with less miles. It was an amazing car, dont get me wrong, but the 100,000 mile mark really killed it. I'm only 6k miles over the mark and my car is falling apart. The cost to fix all the problems is more then the car is worth! Time to just get rid of it.

Grand Am SE1

  • 44,104 miles

This stuff is beginning to make me sick. Not only did they tell me I would have to just live with noise or fix it myself when I picked my car up from having the rotors and calibers fixed I realized that my car had an additional 211 miles on it and only a half tank of gas. Now where the hell did they drive my car I still don't know.
