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.

2003 Pontiac Montana Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 132007

(reported on)

Montana EXT 3.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles


Stay at home mother called and said van was leaking antifreeze.

Took the Montana to the dealer, The service manager was very helpful, He inspected the car and said, A/C condenser very costly 800 bones. Come on man 50,000 miles living in Ohio a/c only runs two months out the year. So i guess 800 $ not bad,

But then he said by the way, You should think about replacing the intake manifold gasket 800 to 950,

So after taxes about 2000$ 50,000 miles?

I see why the imports are kicking gm's ass,

Looks like gm has had intake manifold problems for 8 years. They have not corrected this issue. I could fix one of the issues. But two. Never again will i purchase a gm vechicle.
