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

Apr 112008

Grand Prix 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 127,000 miles


Rear brake lights not working, but third center brake light is working. Took to mechanic (pep boys) who changed the brake pads, rotors, brake fluid and replaced the bulbs and fuses, (as well as a motor w/reg for the driver's side rear window, serpentine belt, alternator drive belt, tie rod outer and oil change). When I got the car back, realized they never fixed the problem. Returned the car and told it was the multifunction switch at a price of $450. This is great considering my bill for everything was $1,500, and the problem I brought it in for (brake lights) was never fixed. On web site: there are approximately 119 complaints all about the multifunctional switch on pontaic vehicles. I am hoping that at some point the issue will be addressed to save other unsuspecting poor souls that bought a Pontiac (Grand Prix GT).
