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.

  • 188,000 miles


The contact owns a 2002 Pontiac Montana. The contact stated that while having the windshield repaired by an independent glass company, the technician stated that the frame near the top of the windshield was rusted. Due to the rust, the technician was unable to properly install the new windshield because it would increase the chances of the windshield shattering or separating. The dealer and manufacturer were notified, but denied any assistance with repairs of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileages were 188,000.
