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.

2003 Pontiac Aztek Owner Comments

problem #2

Feb 042005

Aztek 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 18,500 miles


We purchased a new 2003 Pontiac Aztek in March of 2003. To date we have had the car in for repairs on the heater fan motor replaced twice, the drivers door hinges reset twice, the rear trunk release replaced twice, repainted the drivers door and rear drivers area near taillight because the paint was gone, several no-starts that were not repeated at the garage-but needed jump starts to run, rear drivers tail-light was replaced once because it was falling out and its starting to fall out again, front wheel bearings are being replaced tomorrow. We have a little over 18,000 miles on the car and hate it and will probably never buy another Pontiac because of this lemon. All repairs have been done under warranty so far, but what happens when that runs out? sell it to the next sucker I guess.

Electric cooling fans malfuntioned. I purchased the vehicle 6/30/2003 and I have noticed the temp guage fluctuating. I took it to the dealership for repair and they found that the electric cooling fans were not working. There were only 600 miles on the vehicle.
