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.

2004 Pontiac Grand Prix Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 192005

Grand Prix 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,240 miles


The contact complained about a failure of the middle rear seat belt. While locking the brakes before striking another vehicle the rear middle seat belt did not lock the rear facing car seat in place. On the point of impact, instead of locking the seat belt, it released too much webbing, and the car seat overturned. The car seat flipped upside down with the child in it. The seat belt remained buckled. Although they were involved in a crash the vehicle sustained minimal damage to the front headlight and bumper. There were no prior problems with the seat belts. A police report was taken at the scene.
