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.

The contact owns a 2001 Pontiac Montana. Whenever the contact would activate the air conditioner, either while driving various speeds or at a stop, only hot air would come out of the vents. The contact did not notice any differences in the vehicle prior to the air conditioner failure. Also, on both of the sliding doors, the rubber bumper falls off whenever the doors are opened or closed. The vehicle has not been diagnosed by the dealer. The VIN was unknown. The current mileage was 119,000 and failure mileage was 100,000.

Gas leaking under the driver seat and under the hood. Also, gas was pouring out from the motor. The window failed to open, the consumer is currently waiting on a new motor. The rear brakes were leaking, the tie rods had to be replaced because they were loose, the left rear stuck became stuck, when the gear was taken out of park and placed into drive and the consumer proceeded to accelerate the vehicle jerked, the engine light illuminated, the dealer determined the emission system was dragging, the driver side mirror vibrated, the bumper cover was loose. When the consumer attempted to turn the key in the ignition, the vehicle did not start, the dealer was unable to duplicate the consumer's concern. The fuel pressure regulator was leaking and the fuel filter was replaced. The vehicle would not go over 10 mph, the vehicle shifted and then returned to normal speed. The plastic on the drivers seat was loose.
