2001 Pontiac Aztek Owner Comments

problem #3

Aztek 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


I was finding antifreeze in my oil. Took to the shop and had to have the intake gasket and the manifold gasket replaced. Also had to have a new thermostat and pvc valve. It cost almost $900. This is not the only problems have had to have the front wheel bearings replaced 2 times and brake shoes 2 times. Also had to have the heater fixed. Now the ac does not work. Had to have the window control unit replaced on the driver side. Had to have computer components replaced because the battery went bad with no notice. And now the windshield wipers do not work. To fix this problem is going to cost me $200 that is just for the whole motor and connecting rods. Because it is a factory only part. All together I have paid almost $2,000. The ac is the condenser which is another $300. I have had and loved GM vehicles for awhile. But this kind of thing has never been a problem.....something has got to be done.

Aztek 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Purchased my 2001 Aztek in October 2000. Every year (winter) since 2001, I have had to take my vehicle into the dealership for repair because I lose my traction control which automatically takes out my ABS brakes. The dealership doesn't have a clue as to why this is happening. This is a safety issue, considering where I live. There are 5 incident dates, thus far.
