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.

Grand Am

  • 162,000 miles


I have had to replace the windshield wiper transmission on my 2004 Pontiac Grand Am 3 times, if I go thru a car wash it breaks my wipers every time, my drives side wiper would not work at all, finally I had to get it checked out by a mechanic and he told me it would cost 500 plus to fix, thankfully I found a part at a junk yard for $50 and replaced it, about a month later I went thru a car wash and it broke again, I think that water pressure shouldn't break it! also my security light keeps coming on, I have no idea why, it goes off after being on a few mins, also my dash is peeling very bad, which every Grand Am I have looked at is peeling, it blocks my dash and everything and its putting pressure on my front window! thanks!
