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 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 0 miles


Vehicle just shut off while driving on highway. Hazardous to myself and others on the road, out of no where. Lights on dash go crazy and vehicle stops running. First time it happened got towed to a shop said there is possible leaking of the fuel tank, also suggested to replace fuel pump, then decided that was not needed and replaced fuel pressure regulator. Vehicle worked for 3 months, but could still smell fumes of gas when first started car, this smell began first week I purchased the vehicle. Second time was two days ago on the highway once again. Mechanic is concerned regarding fuel tank leak and fuel pressure regulators again. I am concerned to drive this vehicle due to it being unsafe and possible fire or explosion could occur. Who manufactures a vehicle that has insufficient fuel tank welding"?" this is ridiculous and dangerous.

Grand Am 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

I purchased this vehicle in April of 2006. September of 2006 the vehicle began locking and unlocking by itself, whether I'm driving or in park. I changed the battery in the remote car alarm, but that did not help. I have three children and I am not comfortable riding in a vehicle with this type of defect.
