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 #1

Feb 012011

Montana N/A 6 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 172,000 miles


This problem is that every once and awhile, after a particularly bad rainstorm, I find water under the front floor carpet mainly on the passenger side. I'm concerned about rusting of the floorboards and mold but so far I've only got water stained carpets. It is not associated with A/C use nor any other condition. One mechanic thinks it is being caused by leaves and debris clogging the rainwater drainage channels at the rear of the right front fender. Is this possible and if so, how can I check this out or clear it myself? Shouldn't Pontiac have anticipated this and made some provision to keep it from happening?
