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 GT 3.8L

Had a problem with the Gear shift. I couldn't push the button to shift gears. I found that if I pushed down on the gear shift knob, it would slide down a bit, then I could push the button. It's annoying, but easy to get around.
