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.

Bought the car and 2 days later the gear shift would lock into park and actually be in reverse. The first time this happened I was out of my car and the shifter engaged reverse and drove away with my child in it! it was a complete surprise the first time and then a major headache pushing sticks into special release holes to get the vehicle shifter to move and get the key out of the ignition. I had to have the dealer replace the cable with a GM part which means given the nature of the failure the part will fail again due to design. Unfortunately, the old part is not available. But if there's a recall I'm sure there will be plenty of Pontiac Grand Prix's that will come forward.
