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.

2005 Pontiac Sunfire Owner Comments

Fatal flaw. The vehicle I am speaking of is a Pontiac Sunfire possibly 2005 model year. I had rented it from a rental company and used it for about a month. During the use there were a couple of incidents where I would remove the key from the ignition thinking the car was off but come back an hour later to find out that the engine was still running. I didn't really care about this but I was watching on news and found out that an entire family of 6 had died because of carbon monoxide poisoning. So this simple possible defect of the Pontiac could be fatal. I don't know if it is a defect for all Pontiac Sunfires but it should be checked out because of the possibility of death.
