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.

Grand Prix

  • 30,000 miles


My 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix has been in for service 3 times for system charging failure, the car looses power, the light flashings, looses, power, looses radio, looses blower motor for heater. I have brought it into the dealer 3 times, they have had it for 3 day's so far this week and can not find a problem with it. I looked on the internet and found that I am not the only person with this problem and I am not the only person that can't get the problem solved.

The contact owns a 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix. While driving approximately 30 mph, the vehicle jerked and then stalled at a traffic light. She shifted the gear into park in order to restart the vehicle. Afterwards, the vehicle would not accelerate past ten mph. The vehicle was towed to a local repair shop and they stated that the transmission was defective. The vehicle was repaired. Approximately two months later, she noticed a loud noise and her vehicle was driven to a local repair shop. The mechanic informed her that there was a hole in the water pump that needed to be replaced. Four months later, the windows would not roll down. The vehicle was driven to a local repair shop and the mechanic reviewed a diagram of the vehicle. The diagram stated that the fuse for the window was not located in the proper place. The window has not been repaired. The dealer stated that the failure was not under warranty. The manufacturer has not been notified. The current mileage was 50,000 and failure mileage was 45,000.

Grand Prix

  • 6,000 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix. The contact stated that he had headlights and a blue tooth installed in the vehicle. When he removed the key from the ignition, the stereo made a loud popping noise that could be heard through the speakers. Whenever it pops, the contact experiences electrical failures and the clock, instrument panel gauges, and the stereo would reset. Oftentimes, the head and tail lights will dim while driving at night. The dealer could not duplicate the failure. The tail lights have blown on the vehicle at least nine times. The windshield was blurry, which resembled driving under the influence and prevented clear visibility. The windshield was replaced under warranty. The manufacturer instructed him to take the vehicle to the nearest dealer. The contact stated that he had already been to the dealer a minimum of nine times and the failures could never be duplicated. Thus far, the battery and dashboard have been replaced. The molding for the driver's side window has been replaced as well; however, the failures persist. The VIN was unknown. The failure mileage was 6,000 and current mileage was 27,000.
