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

Driver side wiper assembly began to move the end of the blade past the top outer part of the wind shield a month ago and did not return as far down out of sight as previously. During the rain last night it stopped. Blocked the passenger wiper from moving and the passenger blade snapped off and loosened the washer tip. Cannot drive in the rain now due to poor visibility/failure of the driver side wiper. Waiting for clear weather to have it repaired. I believe this has occurred in later year GM trucks by postings on the internet. Had to wait out the rain for hours last night to get home.

Wipers have failed 4 times the first time I never even left the dealership the day I bought it and they were broke. Took van to dealer and was told this isn't a recall problem but it should be they stick in the up position when off and work erratically. Called GM customer service and was told since van is a 2001 it is out of coverage. $474 to repair. This is ridiculous.
