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

There are 2 main safety concerns with my 2002 Pontiac Montana thunder minivan. First, the rear driver's side brake light has gone out. Even with replacement of bulb and fuse, the brake light will not work. From researching on the internet, this seems to be a design defect and a common problem. This is a major safety issue!!! second, the rear windshield wiper does not work. Again, this seems to be a common 2002 Pontiac Montana problem, and again, is a safety concern.

The windshield wipers freeze up in the winter, making it impossible to see. They are recessed down too far and receive no heat from the defroster to keep them from freezing up.

Windshield wiper stopped working, wiper bearly takes the snow and pushed it between hood and windshield, forming a buildup of ice that slows the wiper from working. Was told it was an engineering problem.
