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

Feb 052004


  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


The vehicle has 100,000 miles on it and on top of replacing many "minor" parts as well as the air conditioner condenser, the transmission and computer board, we have now replaced the wheel bearings 3 times. And, while replacing the bearings we found that the half-shaft is bad and has to be replaced. The bearings were on indefinite backorder, with no dealer in the state having any. This once again cost us the use of the vehicle for a couple of weeks. This car is awesome except for it's complete lack of reliability. I hope they've fixed these problems on later models. GM has taken no blame for any part even the ones that should have been under warranty. The dealer won't replace the rear latch problem without charging for it. How long will it take before GM figures out that saving money at the cost of customer satisfaction does not pay in the long run?
