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.

Loud "clunk" noise is heard from the exhaust system under vehicle during start-up and engine shutoff, cruise control shuts off during operation at 55+ mph, front passenger seat recliner handle broke off without force, handle on the cargo shade in the rear broke during cold temperatures, driver side mirror shakes while driving, fog lamps keep blowing out on both sides, gas pedal sticks often, causing a safety hazzard in traffic.

On 2/9/00, ruck was taken to james martin Chevrolet-Buick dealership due to emission problems. The truck was not repaired until 3/7/00 because it was "difficult" to determine where the evaporation leak was coming from. Less than 6,000 miles later, another emission problem happened on July 29th. I was driving on the expressway when I started to smell gas fumes. It brought me to the point of chocking and I had to get off the expressway and get out of the truck to breathe. The problem was fixed on 7/31/00, however, I still feel that a recall should be issued on the Chevy Blazer 1998 edition. The botton of my invoice states that further diagnosis will be done once the driver notices any other problems. This concerns me because each time, the emission problems is becoming worse than the last one.

Second set tires worn out at 39000 miles due to unidentified frt sus.problem.due to unusual amount of dealer verified concerns and past title history, even though most occured before factory w/added gmpp all attemts to have local GM dealers repair any of the problems acknowlaged, have been refused at presant time car sits in my driveway and we are using a rental paid for by me. The dealers, and factory have passified me through 3/36 coverage and made me think some conserns were not valid, because I was forced to drive vehc.all complaints have been duplicated and varified, documented by many GM techs. As well as passengers, private shops and the same dealer who questened concerns.my job, marrage, and daily life have been affected and saftey was and is disregaurded by what I once considered the greatest auto manufacturer in the world, there are many problems that exist to date and were recorded before 3/36( dot number: Tire size: P235/70R15 )
