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 102006

Aztek 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,134 miles


Went to put gas in my car. Half a gallon went into the filler tube, half a gallon poured on my shoe and the side of the car. Called off work (AGAIN!), drove down to my mechanic. Luckily I made it down without running out of gas. After plugging into the computer he found that according to the computer that I had rolled the vehicle and the car sealed the gas tank. Sensor on the gas tank had gone bad (Big Surprise) and he had to replace the filler tube because GM in there infinite wisdom made it so you can't un seal the unit. You have to replace it. By the way, the sensor is on TOP of the gas tank. SO it has to be dropped to replace it.
