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.

Same symptom description as complaint # 10154674. I am in South Carolina and purchased a vehicle in November 2006. I waited out winter and rain season to see if problem would subside, it did not, and has increased in frequency. Initially repair shop could not identify or replicate after exam of multi components, including fuel systems and running computer diagnostics in May 2007. After 2 days and replicating once they reprogrammed the PCM for update and performed crank sensor learning/. repair price changed from quote and I renegotiated down to $109. Problem not remedied occurring 3X the same evening and continued multiple times daily. Incidents spanned 7 months, and easily, not exaggerating, over 120 occurrences all weather, temperatures and time of day. Stalled and stuttered getting harder and up to 7 attempts to get car to start after pressing accelerator.

I purchased the vehicle used, within the first week of ownership, I am having trouble with the ignition. I turn the key to start the car, think that it has started and find out it hasn't. upon calling the dealer, I was told that a recall was issued for this problem. Taking it to a local Pontiac dealership, I am informed there is not a recall for this problem. The dealer has given me a 30 day warranty, and pays to have the car repaired. Upon a search on the internet I can not find any recalls for this problem. Appreciate your help. Thanks.
