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.

2001 Pontiac Montana Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 152007


  • Automatic transmission
  • 68,000 miles


The compressor for my 2001 Montana, having only 68K miles was diagnosed as defective by jones Pontiac service in lancaster. There was a crack in the compressor, which wasn't caused by wear & tear. The manufacturer, Pontiac refused to replace this at a discounted cost. The replacement cost was $1,200. The compressor doesn't work, and would leak freon into the atmosphere if used. I haven't had this fixed or permitted freon to be filled into the compressor, so I haven't used the compressor. The compressor is needed to defrost the windows in the winter, which could cause a hazardous situation. I believe Pontiac should hold the manufacturer accountable for this abnormal defect, and offer a 75% discount on the part.
