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 #2

Vehicle has been intermittently losing power completely, and indicating loss of ABS system. Replacing fuses returned the car to the road, but happened at least twice more within the subsequent week. Vehicle was brought to a repair shop who eventually found the problem after 3 days. Part of the wiring harness was routed improperly under the top driver's side flex motor mount. Each time the motor mount would flex under driving conditions, the metal would erode the protective shielding around the harness and the wires themselves. Wires and harness were repaired and re-routed over the mount and secured properly.
