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.

1999 Pontiac Sunfire Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 012009

Sunfire 2.4L 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 92,000 miles


I'll be driving and my car will just shut off so i have to put it in neural start it up (it always starts no problem) and i keep going. Sometimes it will shut off in the middle of a turn and my power steering goes out so i have to use everything i have to make sure i don't hit the oncoming car. Also when i go to take off the gas hesitates terribly and a lot of the time when im stopped at a light it studders or shakes back and forth. I don't know if these problems are connected or not.
