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

Nov 012004

Montana 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 28,000 miles


The contact owns a 2001 Pontiac Montana. The vehicle was purchased brand new. In November of 2004, the ABS light illuminated and displayed "track off" in the message center of the service tracker control system. The contact attempted to take the vehicle to the dealer, but it would not start. The vehicle was towed to the dealer and they stated that the ABS shorted out. The contact had to replace a brake module and a valve kit. The shortage fried the battery and it had to be replaced. After the replacement, the vehicle operated normally until February of 2008 when the failure recurred. He took the vehicle to the dealer and was informed that the brake module and valve kit failed again. The vehicle is currently at the dealer. The failure mileage was 28,000 and current mileage was 56,500. Updated 03-18-08
