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.

1998 Pontiac Grand Prix Owner Comments

problem #2

Nov 082010

Grand Prix 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 147,000 miles


Signs and symptoms of my issue are consistent with GM recall 02049 and NHTSA Campaign 02V28600, which involves failure of the rack and pinion system and the inability to turn the car left. After several calls to GM and Pontiac, they claim my VIN # does not qualify for this recall. Hogwash. This is easily a $1300 repair, which I can't afford. After the poor customer service and non-english speaking reps I have dealt with, I will never again buy a Pontiac product. Thank God that Pontiac is no longer making cars!
