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.

2000 Pontiac Montana Owner Comments

problem #2

Montana 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission

This door is still a problem today. When using the automatic slider door it does not close correctly so the buzzer warning goes off nearly every time the door is closed. Meaning you must be in park before you can retry the button to make the door close correctly. , and the slider opens and closes very slowly. It is a real pain and problem when dropping kids off at school in the drop off lane and the door finally closes but buzzes and you have to hold the line up while the dam door reopens and hopefully closes correctly.

The automatic slider door often will not close. You hit the button to close as your walking away and as the door comes to a close and hits the sensor it reopens. It is a real problem when you don't notice its acting up again. We have gone in to store and come out and the door has been open after we thought it was closed and locked. Be careful with your automatic doors Montana owners!!!!
