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.

My girlfriends 2004 Pontiac Grand Am (V6) has a problem with her windshield wiper motor transmission link. On the link itself there is a plastic ball socket that connects the link to the motor transmission. This plastic socket is defective and slips off of its connection thus making the driver side wiper useless. In heavy rain it is very dangerous and she had to pull over many times. The part from the dealer is $161 and not easily affordable. To prove my case even further I went to a car junk yard and found a used linkage. This car had engine problems and the windshield assembly wasn't affected at all. I took the part home put it on her car and it worked for a few months. It rained today and she went to use it and once again the linkage has slipped off its socket. I really do believe the cheap plastic they used to make this connection to the transmission is defective. They could of used a light metal material or anything but plastic. Once again we see big business cutting corners to save money at the consumers expense.

One day I went to roll up my window and when I pushed the up button, the window started going up but it suddenly stopped like it was caught on something. I continued to push the up button and the window wouldn't move. So I pushed the down button and the window went down. So I pushed the up button again and the window went up and made a noise like it got caught again and the window went up. Since that day it has continued to get caught up but continues to go up.

Clicking noise coming from dashboard. From researching internet other consumers have same problem said they were told it was multi-function switch. I had not heard the clicking before just started all of a sudden. I have not had it fixed yet because I didn't know what was causing it.
