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.

I bought the car Oct 2003 it had 23000 miles on it and then when it hit 30000 miles that's when trouble started my husband went to check on his brother and turned the car off and was off for 1 hour and went to start the car and it wouldn't stay running took it to the local repair man and he worked on it and nothing $250 dollars later he hauled it the GM dealer in independence ks. Where they said it was the anti theft device had me locked out and the had to replace the module. $480 later. Now when I drive a distance my check engine light comes on and my car acts like it tries to cut out and shifts hard and jerks. And my tract off light stays on now all the time. My last Grand Prix had 160000 miles on it before it started acting up. My local repair man said that I need to replace the brain module and all my problems well stop. And now when it rains my car feel up with water on the passenger side floor board 2 inches right now so if there is a recall on this car it needs to be the whole car. Right now the car has 51000 miles.

Windshield has distortion horizontally through the drivers viewing area. This was present on the original as well as the replacement. Severe distortion was also present on each side of the original windshield and along the lower edge of the replacement windshield. Distortion is causing impaired vision as well as driver fatigue due to headache and nausea.
