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.

I have contacted GM several times to no avail.here are my problems.the right side latch on the seat has been replaced three times by apple valley cherolet. Now the one on the left has broken.this is a two door vehicle and the only way to get in and out of back seat.this car is not mistreated to have this happen.three times it has left me sitting and wont start sometimes you can tell when its going to happen because the lights will dim and the charging gage will drop they have tried to repair this but havent, the windsheild wipers now will delay for about five times then they just stop in the middle of the windsheild or keep running as fast as they can until you turn them off and start over, the four wheel drive system kicks in on its own and you have to stop to get it back to two wheel drive, not the light on the dash it stays in two, the brakes are spongee and go almost all the way to the floor, GM said my Blazer wasnt in the recall for the brakes because of where it was made, the exhaust smells like sewer I dont know if I have an exhaust leak or not, when I received this vehicle I ordered it in December of 97 and received it in Feb. Of 98.the bolt was missing off of the strut, they replaced that and alligned the front end and it still will not stay in allignment, since the warranty has ran out 4,000 miles ago we have replaced a belt tightner and a water pump
