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.

1999 Pontiac Montana Owner Comments

Montana 3.4L

If General Motors put as much effort as they do into their warning light system and applied it to the quality of the rest of the vehicle, they may not have needed to beg for a bailout. A friend of mine once said, if the check engine light is OFF on a GM product, the bulb is probably burned out. The 99 Montana dashboard is like a Christmas Tree. They go on, then off, then stay on, then you spend a fortune on emissions parts that far exceed the value of the car. My ABS light has been on forever, and now I guess the airbags are about as dependable as rain. The light comes on then off then on. The anti lock braking system is inoperable regardless of the status of the light. Go figure. Thank God I know how to winter drive the old fashioned way, by pumping the pedal myself.
