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 #3

The problem began with noisy brakes. Then all of a sudden when I went to turn a corner the brakes and tires locked up and would not turn. I almost hit several vehicles while I was trying to get this repaired. When hooked to the computer it would not throw anything telling the computer what was wrong. When it got worse it finally threw a code to the computer and said its the wheel bearings which costs $250 per tire. I cannot afford to fix all 4 tires so I have only repaired 2 at this time. Hopefully something can be done about this. Recall or reimburse me my $$ for the repairs. This is a dangerous condition for the vehicle!!!! this problem began several months ago. I have found out that the left front has already been replaced once and is defective again!!!!

I am told by my service man that my wheel bearings are going to need to be replaced in my 2002 Pontiac Aztek with only 109,000 miles. I was also told by several service people and friends that this is an ongoing problem with Azteks. Has there been a recall on this? I did not have an accident yet, my service light came on.
