2005 Pontiac Aztek Owner Comments

problem #2

Mar 172015

Aztek 6-cyl

  • 72,100 miles


The vehicle has seemed to stall twice. Upon further discussion with the driver, the steering also locked. This seemed similar of the same as the GM recall for faulty ignition switches and key slots. Pontiac was contacted but the response was that the vehicle was not under a recall, was out of warranty, and that repairs would be the expense of the owner. Pontiac did not seem concerned about a potential extension of the GM recall list. Wouldn't you think that GM would be very interested in understanding if the Pontiac Aztek is affected. We are now very concerned about driving the Pontiac Aztek.

: the contact stated while turning the steering wheel left or right and while driving any speed there is a knocking sound coming from the steering. This does not affect the steering ability of the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to dealer on three occasions for this problem. The first occasion February 28, 2006 the steering shaft was replaced. The second March 29, 2006 the steering column assembly was replaced. The third occasion May 22, 2006 the rack and pinion steering gears were replaced. The problem with the steering has not been corrected. The manufacturer has been alerted. Updated 6/22/06 -
