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.

Blazer 4WD

  • miles


This vehicle is plagued with problems. Replaced both front & rear shocks at 51,800 miles at a cost of $342. At 50,800 miles, replaced disc pads, disc brake shims and rear rotors at a cost of $290 - rear brakes were completely rusted out. Four new tires at a cost of $440 were put on this vehicle at 48,610 miles. I have had this vehicle aligned and tires balanced three times in ten months - one was a forced balance at a cost of $160. The steering wheel is not straight and the vehicle's passenger side sits 1" to 1 1/2" lower than the driver's side. No one seems to be able to figure out what the problem is with this vehicle. Next repair is to adjust the torsion bar and re-align it to see if this fixes the problem. Every time I go over the slightest bump, the whole body of the vehicle shakes! it feels and sounds like the fenders and doors are going to fall off. I have owned this vehicle for 13 months, put 8,600 miles on it and have spent $2,385 in repairs so far. I am not a happy person.
