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.

This car is a very very nice car if not for the transmission shifting hard and sometimes not at all or the car shutting off at at any time. Car has two or three recalls for different things but of course not for the transmission and Timbrooks(dealership in Cumberland Md) doesn't want to give me a loner car while the recalls are being fixed. The one thing its being recalled for is that the 1998 Pontiac grand prix likes to catch fire and burn up.
