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.

2001 Pontiac Aztek Owner Comments

problem #1

May 022005

Aztek 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 56,918 miles


ABS and traction control features have never worked properly; ABS comes on at slow speeds, and sometimes the system just shuts itself off. Dealer and my regular mechanics have dealt with this from 2001 when I purchased the car (a demo) from the dealer (9,152 miles) up to now (2005, 56,925 miles). I have spent a small fortune having this diagnosed and repaired, and Pontiac has told me it is no longer their problem. I have had all the front wheel bearings, hub assemblies, pigtales and harnesses replaced more than once; I have new brakes; I have new front struts (monroe); I have no patience.
