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.

2008 Pontiac Torrent Owner Comments

Within 1 month of each other 2 valve stems broke. Tire went from being right on tire pressure to no tire pressure in seconds. Valve stem broke once by removing valve stem cap and the other one removing tire pump nozzle. Both times tires went completely flat in seconds. Dealership charged me about $325 to replace these tire stems. This leaves me with 2 more in question. My family rides in this vehicle with me a lot. Noticed a lot of complaints online about similar incidents and concerns. The dealership actually suggested these probably got broke at a car wash. They both broke in front of my face trying to add air. Someone will die because of these tires.
