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.

2001 Pontiac Sunfire Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 012007

Sunfire SLX 2.2L 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 43,496 miles


Thank goodness the Sunfire has been axed along with the whole division. Like every other GM, it was only ever designed to last 3 years or 60,000km. After that, everything starts to break down! The blower fan doesn't work at lowest speed, heat only works for 3 min. and then becomes cool (important when it's -25C out), the weatherstripping has fallen off on the driver's side pillar, there is a rattle in the rear wheel/axle, the windshield fluid reservoir is leaking and cannot hold a drop of washer fluid, the starter died, the brake light electrical system went haywire. And the worst - while driving down a steep hill in Winter, the ABS system shuts down after 5 mins. of continuous braking! Too bad the goverment didn't let GM die off like it should have.
