Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

1998 Chevrolet Blazer Owner Comments

I have a 1998 S-10 Chevy Blazer that has an ABS problem. The brakes are unable to stop the vehicle at a safe distance. 90% of the time the brake pedal resists pressure being put on it and pushes back. I had the ABS fuse removed to disconnect the system and the problem ceases. My mechanic says the ABS sensors will have to be replaced at a cost over $1000. This vehicle is up for inspection this month and will not pass because of this problem.

: the contact stated when attempting to stop at low speeds the brake pedal went to the floor and there was an increased stopping distance. The vehicle was seen by an independent repair shop. Both wheel speed sensors of the antilock brakes were replaced.
