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.

My 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT has had problems with the car stalling and dying without warning. It is very random. Typically, the car hesitates/stalls then the "tcs off" light comes on and the RPM meter hits 0. I have twice changed the catalytic converter because of this problem at the Pontiac dealer's suggestion.the problem still exist. What can be done as my car will shut off at any speed and will not restart immediately. This is a safety issue that needs to be addressed. What can I do to get this defective condition fixed or repaired properly" does any other 2001 models have this problem"

At approx. 65 miles per hour the catalytic converter collapsed causing me to lose all power on the interstate and nearly causing an accident when it died.

2001 Pontiac Grand Prix caught fire in 2006 at ellensburg, wa and burned to the ground in 2008. Pontiac now says they are not responsible because the car was originally bought as a fleet vehicle. What" does that make them fire proof?"
