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.

2002 Pontiac Aztek Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 062002


  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


Truck will maintain acceleration, sticking while braking or normal driving. This failure had been checked by dealership which reassured owner problem was fixed. Truck parked in owner's garage not being moved. On three different occasions, the vehicle drives without using acceleration. The brake is used to control the vehicle. After the third repair, consumer is afraid to operate the vehicle. The vehicle also had a fuel gauge fluctuation. The warning bell chimes at different levels before the gasoline is exempt from the tank. The check engine light illuminates. For this matter to be resolved, consumer would like Pontiac to buy the vehicle back.
