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.

2005 Pontiac Montana Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 112005

Montana 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles


This is a safety issue involving ABS system for my 2005 Pontiac SV6 Montana. On or about August 11, 2006 my ABS light came on while under normal operation of the van. This has been an intermittent problem over the past 6 weeks. I took it to a local independent shop to have it diagnosed and the local shop informed me that the codes were to new that I would have to take it to a dealership. After taking it to the dealership they diagnosed it as having an electrical problem. There were no faulty modules but that this was a wiring problem. I am the only owner of an 05 Pontiac Montana that I know. Recently I have had various other problems with the power sliding door intermittently opening whenever you engage the transmission into reverse (right side only). My 6 year old sits in the right rear seat. Hope this doesn't happen while driving down the highway. Does this vehicle have faulty wiring or do I just have bad luck.
