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.

2003 Pontiac Grand Prix Owner Comments

problem #2

Aug 212008

Grand Prix

  • 17,000 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix. The contact stated that the front driver's side rotor contained a rust line. Prior to this discovery, the outer surface of the rotor was thinner as if it was shaved down. There were no prior failures with the rotors on the vehicle. The contact stated that the front passenger side rotors have four black circular lines protruding from the machine surface. All of the rotors on the vehicle are failing. The dealer inspected the vehicle and stated that the warranty was exceeded; therefore, the repairs will be made at the contact's expense. The failure mileage was 17,000 and current mileage was 21,000.
