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

Aug 072005

Grand Prix 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 27,000 miles


The consumer owns a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix. She came home on Sunday night and when pulling into the driveway her husband got out to do something. When the consumer left the vehicle her son went from the back seat to the front seat and vehicle began to roll backwards down the driveway before she could do anything to her son. However, husband was able to throw a truck tire behind the vehicle and stop the vehicle. The consumer lived in front of a major highway and this could have resulted in three deaths or injuries. The consumer was holding the key in her hand when the vehicle rolled down the driveway. Checking later, she found that any time the key was not in the ignition the gear shifter moved even without applying the brake. She took vehicle to dealer, and dealer stated that they could not repair vehicle because it was manufactured that way. Service department manager stated that there was a certain period of VIN time when that came out, and he could not alter something that was not by the book.
