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

Nov 012004

Aztek 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 48,000 miles


The problem was with the drivers side rear knuckle on the 2002 aztec. The consumer heard clunking coming from rear when hitting bumps. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, who advised the consumer that there was a bushing failure. This caused a forward/backward movement of the driver's side rear tire 1 1/2-3 inches. After further discussion, the dealer would not cooperate in the purchase of the part/labor. The problem is progressive. The vehicle is regularly maintained and service records are available.
