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.

On my 1998 Blazer the windshield wipers would work intermittently. My husband would wiggle the wiring harness and they would start up again but only for a short period of time (usually minutes). Chevrolet moran 586-791-1010 said there was no recall and that the problem was the circuit board.

Sometimes when you are using the wipers they will just stop. Or sometimes they will not come on when needed. You have to keep messing with them to get them to work. When the wipers do not work neither does the headlights.....

Chevy's motto for their trucks on their website is...... " the most dependable long lasting trucks on the road " I bought a 1998 Chevy Blazer in decmber 2001...........this truck is not dependable nor is it long lasting. I have been concerned about the recalls on this vehicle. A representative from Chevy told me that my vehicles VIN # was not part of this recall. Is there any way I can verify this without having to pay for it? my VIN # is [xxx]. information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
