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.

Grand Am

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,000 miles


I own a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am. The window always got stuck when I tried to roll it down so I would push the button over and over and it would go down eventually. Then one day it just stayed up and I heard a noise like it was trying to roll down but the window just stayed up well for a while I would push it down with my hand then roll it back up using the button.well after a while it would just fall down and wouldn't roll up or down. I took it to get fixed and they replaced the regulator. Less than six months later it was broke again wouldn't roll up or down. When I took it back to the same guy he said he bought the regulator used so I had no warranty on it. So I had to pay $350.00 AGAIN! He then used a new regulator which has a 1yr warranty and so far so good but only time will tell!

The window was the first to go. It just decided it wouldn't go down one day as I was driving along the highway. I just used the palm of my hand to carefully guide it down, and it went back up with the button. I've been doing that ever since (about 5 months). I'm so used to not having a working driver window that when i went to test drive new cars i felt spoiled! It only got stuck once, when the rubber around the window was sticky from the rain, but after a little wiggle it went back up. I'm always very careful pulling it down, so i don't crack the window. I've just never had the funds to fix it! Its annoying but definitely not devastating, and probably would have been easy to fix.
