problem #1

Aug 162004

Aztek 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 41,431 miles
On August 16, 2004 I purchased a 2002 Pontiac Aztek from pines Pontiac Buick in pembroke pines Florida, one reason for this purchase was the certified use car sticker and what it meant. Within a few days I went back to the dealer with a complaint of (1) the rear end sounds like it was falling off the vehicle especially when you drove over expansion joints or any thing in the road over a 1/2".the dealership claimed that their was a tsb to replace the ball joint on the rear wheel, I still have the problem today. But of much serious concern is the fact that my vehicle is a veratrak all wheel drive, which was making a moaning noise with every turn left, or right. The car was taken back to the dealer ship numerous times to no avail this was done a few times during the so called warranty period and many times after that. To this day the noise have gotten so bad that it appears on acceleration when I turn into my drive way, any left or right turn. At this point the dealer told me I am out of luck and there is nothing that they can do about it. I am very afraid that soon the rear end will leave me stranded and the dealer have left me holding the bag on what could be a costly repair to me I would appreciate someone looking into this complaint and see if any other owners of like vehicle have experienced the same problem, thank you.
