Aztek 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 27,000 miles
Consumer says body module has blown three times on vehicle. Consumer was on parkway when body module blew out, and vehicle and everything on car shut down. Engine stopped, all lights started blinking, the hatch popped. The body module blew at 7000 miles/at 17000 miles, and again at 27000 miles. Vehicle was taken to dealer three times and body module was replaced. First two times module blew was at night, the third was during the day. Also, consumer says that she is having problem with fuel tank popping. Tank is contracting or expanding, and nothing is relieving the pressure slowly. So when the pressure changes quickly it caused noise. Consumer says this is dangerous and can cause an explosion.
