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

I had my lighter and other A/C outlets go out and when I had someone to try to change the fuse it melted the end of fuse and smoked. I tried to have car put on computer to check for problems and was unable to due to outlets not working. Had a garage work on it and guy found maybe handful of wiring burnt and had to have it rewired and guy said I was lucky it didn't burn on me and damage the computer system. I paid for it to be fixed since my insurance company doesn't offer full coverage on my type and year of car. I am still worried it's going to do the same as before and harm us. I have no means to buy another car or to try to rewire the whole entire car system.
