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.

1998 Pontiac Sunfire Owner Comments

  • miles


When starting out, vehicle starts but when you push the accelerator it stalls, when you try to restart it keeps turning, it won't catch. It has also hesitated while driving at 30 mph and 60 mph. It has done this 15-20 times and been to the dealer at least 7 times. They say that there is nothing wrong, once they updated my computer, another time they replaced my computer, but it still stalls and hesitates.
