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.

2004 Pontiac Aztek Owner Comments

problem #1

May 202006

Aztek 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 47,545 miles


I purchased a 2004 Pontiac Aztek in June of 2005 with 18K on the unit I drove mostly highway miles for my job in all of 05' and the beginning of 06' I had to have the front left wheel bearing replaced in June of 06' and then the front right side needs to be replaced in Jan/ Feb. Of 07' this is not acceptable the vehicle is barely out of warranty and is falling apart / also the rear hatch is failing the hatch will not open properly when the button is pushed or you have to pull up on the hatch when you push the button / very frustrating.
