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.

problem #2

Dec 012010

Grand Prix LS 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,000 miles


the low oil light came on when I checked it, it was bone dry, we took it to the shop, they said that the oil was about to mix in with the coolant, so either it did or it didn't, anyway they claim they have fixed it, we will see when i blow the damn motor up in it. It's a lemon

problem #1

Nov 162007

Grand Prix SE 3.1L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 74,524 miles

We purchased this vehicle in April of 2007 and had rarely driven it, when seven months later oil appears in the coolant "oh what a shocker". Naturally GM does not want to acknowledge this as a defect and is only willing to pay up to $100 of the repair cost as the vehicle is 6 years old, however; they are acknowledging the engines have a problem and are willing to reimburse for repair costs, yet refuse to do a recall. Leaving us financially responsible for a repair that should be fully covered by GM. I will never buy another GM product, I have always been a Ford man, and I should have stuck with what I know best.
