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.

If you search Pontiac Sunfire Blower Motor Switch it is obvious that there is a defect in the GM design on this beast of a car especially with this particular part. How many complaints does it take to get a recall out on this? My blower switch, like many others, only works on the two highest settings. The car has two temperatures hot as hell or cold as ice. This is especially useful in my car where GM thought a black interior was a good option???

From what I've learned, the Sunfires are real money traps. I would tell everyone to avoid purchasing one. I will add some more of it's problems now too.
