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 #2

Nov 132005

Montana 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 600 miles


Whistle noise from front of vehicle around 60 mph. Dealer has replaced the front windshield seal, door seal, and a gasket under the hood but this has not helped. The dealer told me that they didn't hear the whistle unless they drove it 90 mph!!! I was told that this is a problem with Pontiac's design and it can not be fixed. Passenger side sliding door doesn't stay shut and doesn't open when outside handle is pulled and motor running too long and grinding after door has closed. The door motor has been replaced yet there is still a grinding noise when the door shuts. Headlights surging causing me to constantly be bright lighted by oncoming traffic. The dealer told me that this is normal!

: the contact stated the headlights and dashboard lights pulsate, brighter to darker. The dealership determined this was how the vehicle was manufactured.
