2001 Pontiac Aztek Owner Comments

problem #2

GM has issued a safety bulletin in regards to a broken fuel tank that could cause explosions, or fire. I have tried to get them to perform the repair but they are refusing. The problem is for all years of the Pontiac Aztek and Buick rendezvous. I have a leak from this location, the fuel inlet, and am nearly afraid to drive the vehicle, but at a cost of over 2000 dollars, GM is also inflating the cost because they know the repair needs to be done.

Aztek 6-cyl

I contacted Pontiac regarding a recall on my aztec which includes the fuel tank, this is a safety issue since it can catch fire with just a spark from electrical on my car, well they said that I was out of the recall since 2011 I was not even aware there was a recall until I started investigating my problem online, I did not receive any notice regarding this safety issue I am not the original owner I bought it used but I registered it and never received any notice, my children and grandchildren ride in this car, and all they could tell me at Pontiac was we are sorry but you are out of the recall time, and we can schedule you an appointment but we will not pay, so they do not care if someone could possibly die in a vehicle that was a factory default, which is their fault not mine. They are refusing to fix this problem.
