Tom Moog likes telling people that his only new-vehicle purchase burned him. To be accurate, he and his family escaped harm after their 2002 Aztek burst into flames as they traveled to spend Christmas with relatives in 2003. A defective fuel tank filler pipe was to blame. The NHTSA did issue a recall for the problem, but Moog believes his was the only Aztek to immolate itself.
