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.

2002 Pontiac Montana Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 272007

(reported on)

Montana 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 76,000 miles


We purchased from a used car dealer with a one month warranty. We immediately took the family to Disneyland and noticed that after a long period of driving, there is a significant noise that comes from the rear end when turning.

Upon return, the dealer did pay approximately 1/2 of the $800 to shotgun two new hubs at the rear end which did not resolve the issue.

I called a GM dealer to see if this had been serviced in their system, and he mentioned that at 35000 miles, the car did have issues with the AWD module. I don't really know what to do at this point since I can't afford to spend $800/guess.
