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

Oct 282006

Montana 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 32,700 miles


: the contact stated while driving 35 mph, the engine stalled completely. The vehicle was able to be restarted immediately. The vehicle also stalled more frequently at lower speeds. It was previously taken to a service dealer for the same issue, however the dealer was unable to duplicate the problem. Also, there was a smell of fuel outside the vehicle. After being taken to a private repair shop, it was determined that there was fuel a leak where the filler neck met the tank. The tank and filler neck were replaced, which corrected the problem.
