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 #2

Oct 212003


  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


Front tie rods, brakes and rotors completely worn out and require all new replacement as well as new tires. Think originally that tie rod and calipers were defective. Bought vehicle brand new. Have 28,800 miles on it. GM refused to look at calipers saying it was my fault because tires weren't rotated. Doesn't explain how outside brake linings and tie rods wore out.
