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.

Today my daughter left for school as usual. She parked her car and went inside to class. Fifteen minutes later a student came in and told her that her car was on fire! The fire department showed up and put it out. Thank God no one was hurt, however it was one of those moments that could have been on the 6 o'clock news! I never received a notice of a recall for possible fire from Pontiac. I know that '97 - '03 are the ones that were recalled for this issue. They might consider the '04 models. The reason for the fire is not yet determined but I will report back as soon as I know!
