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.

2004 Pontiac Montana Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 112014

Montana 3400 V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 98,300 miles


I was in Charleston W.V. to have major surgery just as I arrived at the hospital and getting ready to make a right hand turn to enter the parking lot my left front wheel hit a small pot hole and I heard something pop really loud in the front end, come to find out the end BROKE OFF OF THE FRONT SWAY BAR. Now I had just had GALLBLADDER SURGURY, and now my wife had to drive 175 miles back home with a broken sway bar that General Motors were too cheap to put a top quality type bar on in the first place to where I wouldn't of had this problem to begin with. With just 98,300 miles on the vehicle something as heavy made as a sway bar should have never broken the first place if they would have used good metal instead of recycled garbage. Now I have to pay almost $500.00 dollars to repair something that I can't afford to do but don't have any other choice because a TRILLION DOLLAR COMPANY LIKE GENERAL MOTORS TOO CHEAP TO USE GOOD QUALITY PARTS IN THE BEGINNING..
