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 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,000 miles


After filling my gas tank and paying for gas, I came out to my vehicle and after starting it smoke started coming from the hood! I lift the hood to investigate and the engine was on fire. (there is a report on file with the fairfiel township police and fire depts.) walker Pontiac in dayton Ohio replaced the engine, I have since received a letter noting the problem with the engine but there has been no recall to date. I have been warned not to park in the garage as this continues to be a problem and there has been an incident of home fire with injuries, due to the vehicle catching fire in the garage!!!
