The contact owns a 2001 Pontiac aztec. While driving approximately 45 mph at night, the headlights failed without warning. The driver experienced extremely limited visibility. The vehicle was pulled over to the side of the road and the contact made several attempts before the headlights illuminated again. The failure occurred intermittently. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic for inspection and the contact was informed that the body control module failed. The vehicle has not been repaired. The manufacturer was notified. The VIN was unable to be entered into the system. The failure and current mileages were 80,000.

Soon after purchase there was a clicking noise that began in the rear of the vehicle when applying brakes. The clicking noise then turned into a popping noise that could be felt when applying the brakes. There is wind noise on the left front door post, noise in the front end of vehicle, the right headlight is inoperable, the horn is inoperable, and the wipers do not turn off at times.
