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

Apr 202015


  • 23,400 miles


The Solstice maintenance light on the dash comes on intermittently reading "ESC service". with that the brake lights would come on and stay on without the brake pedal being pushed. After shutting the car off it would reset itself. Now, as soon as we start the car, the brake lights come on and are staying on withought the brake pedal being pushed and there is no ESC service light indication light illuminated. The brake pedal is high and hard to press. In addition we've experienced difficulty shutting off the cruise control. All of these symptoms are called out on a GM recall #13036 for over 2 million vehicles but the Pontiac Solstice is not listed under the recall. It appears it should be. All of the problems noted on this recall are symptomatic to what we are experiencing with our car. The car is not drivable at this point. It's noted on the recall that any of the above condition increases the risk of a crash. We contacted General Motors and opened a claim. We are being told that any repairs / adjustments that are done will need to come out of our pockets as the Pontiac Solstice is not listed on this recall. This is a very dangerous situation and should be addresses expeditiously.
