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

  • Automatic transmission
  • 22,271 miles


For past year reported increasing wind noise coming from driver's door. Lead to uneven gaps between door and frame of vehicle and creasing of exterior metal on door. Been in for repair 5 times and each time the hinges have to be re-adjusted. Hinges to hold driver's door is literally coming off of frame of vehicle. Also have creaking in rear of vehicle that was looked at but never repaired properly 3 times. Transmission casing cracked and leaked causing vehicle to be out of service for over 3 weeks. Stereo does not hold preset stations and has been replaced once already, and rear hatch does not open and close properly.
