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.

NHTSA — Exterior Lighting Problems Notes: The Pontiac Vibe is the mechanical twin of the Toyota Matrix.

Both models were a joint GM-Toyota venture, manufactured together at a NUMMI production facility in Fremont, CA. Only the heating & A/C systems are different.

A recall was done on the door module controls but after the repair, the airbag warning light lit up. The headlights blow one at a time with in 2 months. One tale light and the third tale light bar on the window also failed. I don't know if it is installation issues or the module caused an electrical overload. No one is willing to admit error.

I have a 2004 Pontiac Vibe, the head lamps and brake lamps have stopped working and the fuses are fine the rear center brake light still works and the brights of the head lamps still work. I was wondering if there have been any other incidents? and the radio display has stopped working also, I have also heard about that from other Pontiac owners.
