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.

2008 Pontiac Solstice Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 232008

Solstice 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 6,300 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Pontiac Solstice. When the contact attempted to start the vehicle, it involuntarily accelerated. She had the vehicle towed to the dealer and they stated that the clutch was frozen to the drive wheel because the vehicle was not stored in a warm temperature. The technician added that water enters the clutch through the bell housing, which induces freezing (case number tac10739629). The dealer is in the process of developing a shield as a remedy. The vehicle has not yet been repaired. The manufacturer did not assist. The failure mileage was 6,300 and current mileage was 6,585. Updated 12/8/09 updated 12/09/09.
