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.

2002 Pontiac Grand Prix Owner Comments

Grand Prix

  • Automatic transmission
  • 34,000 miles


2002 Pontiac Grand Prix. The consumer stated the caliper trusted from the inside out. They were getting too hot and warping the rotors. General Motors was not willing to help with the problem. The brakes were replaced by the dealer in July 2004. The brakes needed to be replaced again in May 2005. Other service centers told the consumer GM puts junk parts on their vehicles. The vehicle shook when the problem was happening. The consumer stated the vehicle sounded like it was stuck in third gear. The transmission needed to be replaced. It was fixed under warranty. The problems started after the consumer's husband had an accident.
