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 hate that you work for no reason. I mean go to work get stressed out and your pay check some how manages to go to your car. What is the point of work? Pontiac should do a recall.

Grand Prix GTP 3.8L Sc V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles

So the passenger side does not heat or cool, at first I thought it was the controls on the dash, I could work the temp slider up and down and get it to work, then it would work for less and less before I had to do it again, then not at all, burning hot in the summer, freezing cold in the winter, and with this winter it is almost impossible to thaw out! I replaced the controls, bought a replacement on ebay, and installed myself, it was $30-$50. It was pretty easy to install but I'm a DIY kind of guy. Well this didn't fix it, and at one point a dealer (friend of the family as well) quoted me $1200 to fix, I said no thanks. I'm going to look into finding the flap and duct taping it whichever way it needs to go.

Grand Prix SE V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles

At about 100,000 miles my 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix's heater stopped working on the drivers side. The passenger side works just fine, while the driver side blows cold air instead off warm. So I basically freeze my but off all winter long. I bought the car used with no warranty. I am a college student and a single mom that can't really afford to get it fixed.
