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.

2000 Pontiac Grand Prix Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 152011

Grand Prix GTP 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles


Fuel gauge basically stopped working completely, along with the fuel information on the information center. Either reads that I'm completely full or on empty and my fuel light is almost always on. Information center either says that I have 450 miles of fuel or is just blank. Really starting to become a pain in the ass. Run out of fuel regularly now. Car also has minor problems with the fuel pump, have to jiggle wires in trunk to start car. Have also had the stuck key in ignition problems, broken heater fan, and now starting to get window problems. Pass side goes up about 3x slower than normal and Driver side doesn't go up at all, only down.

Update from Sep 2, 2011: New fuel pump fixed the problem of hard starting, random stalls, and now my fuel gauge reads correctly. Also mildly fixed windows, sprayed electrical cleaner into the switch connectors.
