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

  • Automatic transmission

The wiper blades were going and they pushed the falling snow into the compartment, packing it in. There is not enough heat in the compartment to melt all the snow, so it freeze. The wiper blades could not return down therefore stopping in the middle of the windshield obstructing the view. Possible design flaw.
