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 #3

May 072009

Grand Prix GT

  • Automatic transmission
  • 84,456 miles


The car started bucking and eventually quit. It would restart and go a while and buck and or stall. The part that really confused me was the traction control lite would come on. It turned out to be the mass air flow sensor. Had it replaced and the intake serviced [cleaned] and it runs fine now.

problem #2

Grand Prix

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles

Trac off light started coming on. Sometimes when driving, for a second or two the car acts like it is going to die, then the trac off light comes on. If I park the car for a little while, it resets the light and runs fine.....for a while, then the problem repeats.

this is bullcrap because my car won't even run and to get out of my car, i was lucky i had the windows open because i had to take my keys out of the ignition and unlock the car from the outside.. and the people that i bought the car from aren't going to do anything about it till Monday and i was supposed to take friends out tonight and now i have to get to school and practice somehow. and the dealership better give me a car to use because it is an electrical problem.. and nobody seems to care but me that my car is DEAD!
