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.

2004 Pontiac Sunfire Owner Comments

problem #1

May 082015


  • 92,000 miles


My daughter left home and the vehicle frame, of the 2004 Pontiac Sunfire, broke in two parts while she was driving the vehicle. The tow truck driver said it broke due to it rusted into two parts. She was not injured but the car of course was inoperable. There was no wreck or accident for the frame of this vehicle to disintegrate. She could have been seriously injured if she was traveling at more than 35 mph and on an open highway. I contacted General Motors and they gave this a GM case number and suggested I contact you concerning this problem to make other vehicle owners aware of it. The shop that is repairing the vehicle stated he had a hard time finding a frame due to the fact this is very common in Pontiac Sunfire vehicles. This is a very serious safety issue.
