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.

The low fuel light came on and as I was at the Gas station to get gas the car cut off. After filling the tank it would not start. It had to be tow to the shop.

The fuel lifter was replaced with some relay ($950.00) but it is still having the same problem.

I really enjoyed my 2002 Aztec .but it started having problem with fuel Gage reading. the light would come on after i just fueled totally. shortly after fueling became a problem it became so overwhelming i couldn't trust my car.from this point on, i cant fuel it no more than $10. the gas would stop as if it was full. i am so pissed. GM please get it together. i don't want to go elsewhere.

Fuel gauge reads almost full all the time, while the low fuel lite comes when your sure you haven't run out 50 bucks in gas already. Not sure what the heck it going on??
