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.

I have recently experienced two major defects with my 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix gtp. First, I have had both my driver and passenger side front wheel bearings to go out. These are not cheap to replace. The cost per bearing is about $90 plus labor. Then, my brake lights have stopped working. After looking at other complaints on the web, I have found that I my vehicle will require a multifunction switch which is costly as well. As far as the bearings go, there is a strong possibility that I will have to replace those again in the near future. My opinion is that if GM is aware of these defects in their product, they should be taking more steps to satisfy their customers as we have put faith in their company and help keep them in business with sales and our tax dollars (bailout). I appeal to GM to recall the parts that are not up to standard on their cars.
