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.

2001 Pontiac Grand Prix Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 182008

Grand Prix 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,046 miles


Driving my 2001 Grand Prix gtp home at approximately 4:15 pm on Friday January 18th. The car started loosing power and I pulled over to the side of the road. Heavy black smoke quickly began to come out from the front end of the car and within 30 seconds the car was in flames. Fire rescue proceeded to extinguish the flames. The car appears to be a total loss. This car was in premium condition. 80,000 miles and maintained with records immaculately. The temperature gauge did not indicate any above normal temperature as well as the battery and oil gauges.
