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.

Fuel gauge not correct in amount of fuel left in tank. Twice in the year 2005, car stopped and had to be towed. The only problem found was that it was out of gas and the gauge was not showing this. Was advised by technician to never let the gauge go below 1/4 full. He said he had witnessed this in other Pontiac Sunfires.

1.)the "trac off" light will come on while driving. When this occurs the steering locks up and the vehicle turns off. 2.) the fuel gauge gives incorrect reading. 3.) both rear power windows will not roll up.
