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

  • 195,000 miles


The contact owns a 2002 Pontiac Montana. The contact stated that sporadically, the vehicle would not start and would not turn over. The battery was replaced by an independent mechanic but to no avail. The contact would allow the vehicle to sit for ten minutes after attempting to start the vehicle. The radio, air conditioner and power windows would operate but the vehicle still would not start. The dealer advised that the failure was due to the anti-theft pass lock switch. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 195,000 and the current mileage was 202,000.
