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.

Grand Prix GT

  • Automatic transmission

This has happened twice before on my son's car (this was once my husband's car) on the driver's window (this is the third time) and three times on the passenger window. About once every two years. Definitely obnoxious.

Every other window will go up and down no problem, but not the drivers side window. It'll go down just fine but when it comes to goin up you get nothing! Seems to be a very common problem with Pontiacs, especially grand prix's and grand am's. Dealer will tell you that it is the window motor or regulator and charge you an arm and a leg to fix. Anywhere from $150-$400, when all you gotta do is find one off of ebay for about $70!!
