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.

2005 Pontiac Grand Am Owner Comments

Grand Am

  • 59,000 miles


My Grand Am has a defective turn signal, just as the 00-01 models did. The turn signal has malfunctioned that lead to flickering or total failure of the turn signal lights and the indicator on the instrument panel. It is constantly flickering, it will not stop, I was told that since my steering wheel is smoking because of this my airbag could explode in my face, while driving. I have been advised by a Firestone technician that this is a common problem.

Grand Am 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

There is an intermediate blinker noise coming from the dash board, when the blinkers are not on. Occasionally the blinkers become stuck. I've also noticed smoke coming from the steering column. I've tried replacing the blinkers and hazard fuses, but this has not helped.
