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.

problem #2

Grand Prix SE 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 147,000 miles


First the front driver side window stopped fully responding to the electric switch. It will go half way down, but will not go back up with out me pulling it up. Then a week later the rear window does the same thing, except this one will go down by itself when you drive the car or it getting shook enough. Have not take it in yet, so if anyone has a solution, please help me. Can not afford to spend a lot of money on it.

Grand Prix GTP 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 84,000 miles

Both windows on the drivers side will not go up. The motors on the power windows just don't seem to work anymore. Ive had to tape them up so they don't slide down. Its a real hassle especially on the freeway. If i hit a bump in the road the window will slide down to the bottom. The tape used to keep it up is only good for so long. I'm sure its fixable but its a real pain.
