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.

2005 Pontiac Grand Prix Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 292007

Grand Prix 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 12,000 miles


My horn has failed on 5 occassions. Pontiac has issued a service bulletin to fix this intermission horn failure, but the fix does not work. I have had several close calls where other motorists have pulled out in front of me and I have not been able to warn them, as the horn failed. I hope this issue can be corrected properly before and accident occurs. Also, Pontiac has a problem with a known defect in their steering gears that they only replace when it fails and only cover if it is in the warranty period. This problem is caused by an internal leaking of the power steering fluid that is not detected because there are no external signs of the leak. This too is a safety concern.
