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

Sep 082009

Aztek V6 3.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 66,852 miles


Sept 2009, transmission gone after 66,852 transmission put in..Dealer tech said gunk built up it happens. Vehicle was maintained completely prior to this.Ar not time during all the normal service visits to the dealership. did they ever notice any "gunk" ..Now on March 31st 2012 replacement transmission gone again at 88,000 miles..Now being repaired by dealership ... I find it hard to believe that this vehicle has had the transmission problems it has. I cannot get a valid explanation as to what happened..I can only conclude that this particular car had to have been defective...I have always bought GM cars, but now they have lost me as a customer...My brother in law has a 2010 Toyota suv with 72,000 + miles and his transmission is fine....

If you have an Aztek be aware...
