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

Grand Prix GT 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 93,816 miles


Well it all started right after I had my battery jumped and replaced. My transmission started slipping around 3500rpms and it wouldn't stop until I let off the gas and then it would shift. And now it is getting even more noticeable. I had it looked at by a transmission mechanic. We went for a drive in it and he said that it is slipping into 3rd gear and would cost the most at $1,500 to rebuild the transmission if it was that bad. So I don't know what to do, its my dream car I'm 17yrs old and need some help from experts

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles

Transmission started slipping around 60,000 miles. The car was only 5 years old. The problem seemed intermittent at first. I finally seemed to notice that the transmission would act up only after the car had been in drive for awhile. Short trips to work, etc, the transmission is fine. Just had a transmission flush done for $120.00, as suggested by our mechanic friend. Didn't help. Looks like we're going to have to have it replaced at just 76,000 miles.
