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.

Aztek 6-cyl

The contact owns a 2001 Pontiac aztec. Five months ago the exterior and interior lights malfunctioned while driving. The contact replaced two oxygen sensors; one in May 2005, and one in August 2005. The contact was still experiencing the same problem. The contact went back to auto zone today and their computer showed her that she needed another oxygen sensor. The car was no longer under warranty. The contact has not spoken to the manufacturer. The contact stated she had gone to several mechanics, and they did not know what the problem was. The only thing showing up was a bad oxygen sensor.

28 March 2002, driving car, all dash lights came on, lost all power to vehicle. Car was towed to dealer, started was replaced. 17 April 2002 driving vehicle 30 mph, made right turn, accelerated vehicle, all dash lights came on, lost all power to vehicle. Service manager and tech came out to the car, disconnected ABS system and vehicle started, tech drove it back to dealership, brake modulator was replaced. 21 June 2002 driving vehicle at 40 mph, dash lights came on, lost all power to vehicle. Called dealership, they towed car in, replaced the computer system. 13 July 2002, driving car at 35 mph, dash light came on, lost all power to vehicle. This happened on a Saturday afternoon, the dealership service department is not open, sat in the car for 15 minutes before I could get it to start, drove it home (approx 3 miles) and let it sit until Monday morning. Drove car to dealership. Was told by service manager that they can't fix it, they don't know what is wrong with it and GM doesn't know what is wrong with it. Contacted Pontiac customer service on Monday morning and request they buy this vehile back under the lemon law. It has been 1 week since the last incident and have not heard from Pontiac regarding a decision. This vehicle has been in the dealership repair shop for 35 day for this specific problem, as of 19 July 2002.
