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

  • 80,000 miles


noticed back brakes not working and took to have fixed felt like a fool cause the guy said that there seemed to be nothing wrong, (because they started working again) now four weeks later the brake lights are not working again. I read here something about the electical harness shorting out. That is most likely my problem, and since that messes with the computer, that will be costly to repair. Now is Pontiac going to recall this and pay for this or is this going to be another out of pocket expense to me. I let the anti lock problem go because it was not covered under my warrenty, (I missed it by 200 miles) and it was going to cost me 300.00 dollars to replace. Since it does not catch and I have no brakes when I have to step on them hard and unless I let up on them. When is this going to end!!!!!
