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

Aztek LS

  • Automatic transmission

This issue first started last year, end of 2012. The shop I brought it to is a certified Pontiac dealer. They have no idea how to fix the vehicle. It shuts down while warming up, or while driving. The lights, radio will stay on, but the "check engine/battery light" is on. It has been in and out of the shop numerous times. It stopped shutting down in November and was just "working". Now end of March 2013, it all started again. The shop has done everything they can think of, and the issue is still happening. Pontiac/GM customer service has been NO help what so ever with this process and won't work anything out. I need to know if anyone else has experienced this intermittent shutting down.
