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 Vibe Owner Comments

problem #1

  • 30,000 miles


I believe the manufacturer is aware of this ongoing problem. There was a recall on this. The part was replaced with a 12 month/12,000 miles whichever comes first warranty according to the dealership. I have read several reviews regarding window part replacements. People have replaced this window part many times. I think Pontiac should be ashamed of themselves. I wonder how long it took them to own up to the fact they knew this part was faulty. Luckily, I caught the problem before winter came, as my window shattered-had to replace window. Thank god none of the glass injured anyone!!!!!
