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

May 022006

Montana 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 66,000 miles


: the contact stated while driving at 45 mph on dry roads the contact's vehicle broadsided another vehicle due to an improper turn by other vehicle. Since the shoulder belt did not hold the contact in the upright position, the air bags did not deploy, the contact sustained severe facial lacerations. The injuries required stitches, and caused severe bruising. A police report was taken, and the vehicle was considered a total loss. The vehicle has not been inspected by a mechanic.
