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

Jan 022006

Aztek 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 76,000 miles


- the contact was a driving vehicle at 70 miles an hour, when the vehicle made a scraping noise due to a wheel bearing failure. There were no inicidents or casualties. The contact's car was towed and repaired. The contact received a letter from the manufacturer stating that there is a problem with wheel bearings but, this was not a recall. The contact letter also stated that reimbursement will be given if the vehicle is under 60,000 or 5 years. The contact's vehicle does not qualify under these perameters. The first incident with the wheel bearings was repaired under warranty. The vehicle 's fuel gauge does not register the contents of the fuel tank.
