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.

problem #2

Blazer LS 4.3L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,000 miles


mechanic had to replace the little module that engages the 4 wheel drive, basically there was a little ball that goes in and out to engage and disengage 4wd, and the ball was stuck, what a crappy design

Blazer LS V6

  • Automatic transmission

This vehicle seems to be falling apart. It really doesn't have that many miles on it but at least every other month its another problem. I like it but I hate the inconvenience. I only drive it a little each week (20 miles or less) but it seems to be going down hill as if I drove it constantly. It rattles and make noise like it is old and has a half a million mile on it. Now the transmission has gotten stuck in 4WD- HI, I guess it could be worse, it could be in 4WD-LO. Any suggestion on this problem would be greatly appreciated. I hope it is something I can fix or at least take to my mechanic and have done cheaply.
