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 #1

Sep 082010

Aztek 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 79,000 miles


transmission started slipping in the fall of 2010, not all the time only sometimes, which in my opinion, is really bad. I would slow down, almost to a complete stop, or stop at a red light or stop sign and the transmission would slip in between gears so it would end up being a VERY slow and sometimes dangerous start. Most of the time this car has pretty good "giddy up" but when this issue occurs it is very frustrating and like I mentioned before often dangerous if you are trying to do a quick maneuver. Normally it will adjust itself and get back to where it is supposed to be in about a minute. During the slippage, the rpms rev very high and the motor whines a bit. Over the last two years, the problem does occur more frequently.
