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 #1

Grand Prix Gtp Coupe 3800 V6

  • Automatic transmission

with this problem you can definately feel the car shifting gears when driving but most pain in the ass is on the gear shift if the rubber boot on the switch to to shift the gears is not in the right place then it locks the key in the ignition also so you have to keep messing with it until it releases your key .... That part I figured out yesterday but going to hv to hire someone who works on transmission for this problem heard is just a chip I hope so I dont think I can handle anymore repairs in one day and we thougth we were getting a deal Jokes on us!!!!! But what can I do my last baby girl loves the car just hope thats the end of it.
