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 #2

Dec 202012

Sunfire LX 2.2L

  • Manual transmission
  • 79,568 miles


Bought car with 23,000 miles on from a private owner in Arkansa. Brakes were tight, very smooth to stop even in emergencies. Then, all of a sudden, my brakes became less than adequate! Almost got hit by a semi, T-boned! Replaced R front caliper and both disc brake pads on front end, no good, problem still existed?!

Then, began to really look at ABS block, master cyclinder ETC. My ABS block was put together in Mexico?

Not Detroit, USA. Now, I have to really be careful when stopping behind another car, or in emergency braking situation? RF brake/caliper still does not close on rotor!! Replaced both front Rotors also, no good?!!

This car was great until this brake situtation developed. Never, ever had this kind of problem with Toyota,Honda or BMW!

This will probably cost me more than the car is worth to fix and it cannot be sold either!
