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

Sep 192006

Montana 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 48,700 miles


The wipers on our 2003 Pontiac Montana with roughly 48000 miles, started moving slowly even when set in the fastest wiper setting. Took it to a local garage that replaced the wiper motor. Wipers were still slow. Took it to a GM dealer on 10/4/06. They could not find the source of the problem and greased the mechanical arms (wiper transmission). A few days later in a driving rain the wipers stopped moving completely. Took it back to the GM dealer 10/16/06. They replaced the wiper transmission and wiper motor for a bill in excess of $1000. The wiper transmission was binding in the passenger side stem that the wiper arm attaches to.
