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.

2006 Pontiac Solstice Owner Comments

problem #5

  • 33,550 miles


The service air bag light came on while driving down the road. I took the car to the dealer, they diagnosed a faulty passenger presence module. They said the passenger side air bag probably won't work in an accident. The repair estimate was over $800. This vehicle has only 33,598 miles on it. This is a huge safety issue and after reading numerous websites, there are a lot of other concerned owners out here. Can you please help get a safety recall for this problem ?

Passenger side airbag switch in seat stopped working only after two years, out of warrantee and will cost over $900 to replace. Drove solo for most of that time so why did it happen?

Pontiac Solstice passenger presence sensor has failed thereby causing a failure of the passenger airbag system and the continual illumination of the airbag failure light.

Driving down the street with a passenger and service air bag light came on the dic. Took Solstice in to Buick, Pontiac, GMC dealer, for ignition recall and passenger airbag light diagnosed as a bad passenger pressence sensor. Estimated replacement charge of $850. Charged $120 for diagnosis. Searching online forums shows this is a common occurence due to a faulty designed seat sensor. Owners are paying for the replacement only for the part to break again. Making this a $970 repair (diagnosis + parts + labor). Please expedite a recall, because this makes this two seat convertible, a one person car! updated 10/9/2014

Airbag warning light illuminated in reference to the passenger presence sensor a persistent problem in the Pontiac Solstice and sister car the Saturn sky which causes the passenger airbag not to deploy if the vehicle is involved in an accident with a passenger present in the vehicle, this is definitely a manufacturers defect and not limited to just a few vehicles but mostly all! GM needs to stand by this product which is a major safety concern and issue a recall on this vehicle and have the passenger presence sensor replaced..
