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.

2003 Pontiac Sunfire Owner Comments

2003 Pontiac Sunfire - rear blinker bulds keep burning out. My wife was involved in a rear end collision and I've almost been in several accidents where the driver behind me almost rear ended me. I've been pulled over about 6 times since I bought the car but luckily not written up. I called the dealer but they told me to just keep replacing the bulbs. The bulbs cost around $2 and they burn out within 2 hours. I've tried different types of bulbs but none work.

Rear turn signal bulbs blew out three times because of a malfunction in the socket. Also, exhaust fumes entered the passenger cabin after driving for a period of thirty minutes. Dealer could not duplicate or determine the cause of the problem.
