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

Bought my car used in 2006, air bag light has come on a few years later, dealer won't fix it because I don't qualify for recall, tells me car came from Canada. Depending on where you check my VIN is also registered in the us. My car is now leaking coolant, one repair shop is sure it's the intake gasket, but I can't get this fixed either because it's not under recall yet I did my own research and found millions of people are getting the same problems. I sure wish I could qualify for at least one of the problems I'm having.
