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.

I was driving down the freeway and my passengers side FRONT WINDOW Fell down. It was really cold out and I had to drive home with the window all the way down. Now, both windows on the passenger side of my car and not functioning. I had to pull up the front window and wedge something inside but, it will only go up so far. Now, not only does my car get wet when it rains, i cannot stop the wind noise, and it is no longer secure. i will be adding pictures later. I AM DISGUSTED WITH THIS CAR BECAUSE IT HAS SO LOW MILEAGE AND IT DOESN'T MAKE SINCE THAT THIS POS CAR SHOULD BE FALLING APART SO SOON. I AM UNEMPLOYED AT THE MOMENT AND THIS CAR IS JUST ADDING TO THE PROBLEM OF TRYING TO KEEP MY HEAD ABOVE WATER.

The motor went out on the rear passenger side door. I ordered a replacement on line and when I reinstalled it I thought that I had hooked it up backwards because the window worked in reverse. I took it apart again to try and remedy the problem but, the motor was wired wrong from the manufacturer. I decided that I could live with that due to the hassle of replacing and the regulator. A month later the motor went out again. I will be filing a separate complaint for that.

Grand Prix LX 3.2L V6

The defect with my car began one afternoon on my way home from a hard day at work. As I entered my driveway I heard a loud crack, which almost caused me to hit the fence, you see I thought someone had hit my car window with a ROCK! But, turns out when I attempted to let my front driver's side window up, the motor ran, but the window stayed put. After getting an estimate, then saving up 4 months to get it fixed, 5 months later the front passenger window did the same, only this time I was not there to witness it, this time the piece of s#!& was simply midway up when I came out to get in my car for work. And lastly, believe it or not while in the process of saving up to fix f%@k up #2, my rear passenger window (f%@k up #3) broke on the day I returned to work. So at this time I have about a $1000 worth power-window-deficiencies to take care of!!!! Needless to say I am pissed off; everyday I am concerned someone will steal my car, it will get soak and wet from the rain, and it's at the point where I would prefer to put that money towards a down payment for another car, versus fixing d@*n defect.

I am disappointed with my car. I have never had any major problems with my car and loved it until now. One by one the windows have had to be repaired. They all have had same problem; regulator or motor. One of the windows totally fell inside door! Another window will not open at all. Presently, two of my windows are partially open because they will not close. Wintertime is coming and I will have to come up with some cash to have it repaired! I have already spent over $300 on one window. It will cost me triple as much. A friend of mine had the same problem with the same type and year car. She could afford to trade hers in though.
