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.

Aztek 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 42,067 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Pontiac Aztek. While parked the contact smelled gasoline and observed it leaking from the fuel tank. Upon arriving home the contact noticed that the leak had increased. The dealer advised her to drive to the repair shop with the fuel leaking from the vehicle. The dealer replaced the gas tank, and stated that the failure was due to GM using plastic to connect the filler hose to the gas tank. The current mileage is 50,100, and failure mileage was 42,067.
