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 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 130,250 miles

This car has put me at my breaking point, literally I am broke and can't afford to fix it anymore. First I replaced the valve covers because of the fire issue, then while doing that I saw that evil milky crap in my valve covers. So I replaced the LIM gaskets after hearing about that issue, and the PLASTIC was cracked. Now a week later the milky crap is back and i have now discovered my head gasket is blown too. GM has lost my loyalty after this. I never did anything to this car that would cause all these issues. I personally repaired all this stuff myself and am still out a lot of cash.It just kills thinking after all that crap I did replacing the PLASTIC LIM gaskets i have to do again and some more to replace the head gasket(and of course its the back one).I am a buy American be American kind of guy but after this I think it is safe to say I will NEVER buy a GM product again.
