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.

I purchased a 2004 Pontiac gran dprix GT2 in June of that same year. One week later the repairs began. The most scary occurring on the date mentioned on this complaint, May 26, 2005, eleven months after I purchased the vehicle. My car died while driving 65 mph on the highway with my three small children in the back seat. The car had no power whatsoever, no steering, no gas, no lights, nothing. I thank god we are alive. The mechanics at the dealership diagnosed the problem as a faulty ignition switch. After this incident I rented a car at my own expense for eight weeks. We did not step foot in the vehicle for that period of time. For financial reasons I slowly began driving my car again. There were repairs before that event as well as afterwards. These include the brain, transmission, brakes, axle, wheel bearings, steering, sunroof, fuel injectors, and safety belts.
