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

Jul 092007

Montana EXT Whl Base 3.2L L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles


The battery was replaced with a new one in May 2007. This was because the post's was melted off, we thought it was because of the engine overheating due to the manifolds - these were replaced. Since the new battery installation, every 20 to 30 days I pull the car into my driveway and the next time I start it to leave - guess what, nothing. There is a click-click, then clunk and no electrical at all. The repair shop will come and pick it up and then find out the cable came off again. This time they used LockTite to secure it to the post - is this safe?

Anyone else experiencing this problem with any vehicle? I need to drive to and from FL from MI next week with two kids, I hate to have it happen enroute - without my mechanics. They are not charging me for any of the battery cable fixes.
