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 SV6 automatic sliding door opens while driving, bad sensor and broke cable was replaced. The consumer also stated the engine failed, which ultimately led to an engine replacement. The vehicle began shaking and misfiring. A bad plug and the stabilizing bar links were replaced. The undercarriage was cracked which was causing a loud knocking and thumping sound under the vehicle. The consumer also had the seats replaced with an after market leather kit because stains had formed on the seats due to moisture. The consumer later discovered a recall had been issued because the after market kit could cause the passenger sensing system to malfunction if the passenger sensing system malfunctions, the front air bag on the passenger side may be disabled when it should be enabled, or enabled when it should be disabled. The consumer was informed his vehicle was not included in the recall
