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

Feb 182006

Montana 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,000 miles


Since vehicle inception, all tires need air every 2-3 weeks. At 5000 miles hit a pothole and bent rh front rim outside bead (air pressure good). Took it to the dealer and they rotated the tires in a X pattern rh front to LH rear, LH front to rh rear, etc. LH rear became rh front, which at 7200 miles while driving down the freeway the rh front rim bead breaks and the bead punctures tire causing momentary loss of control. There was no one in the area at the time and vehicle was pulled to the side of the road.
