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.

1998 Chevrolet Blazer Owner Comments

problem #2

Feb 172004

Blazer 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 66,000 miles


The sun shell breaks on Blazer, mine broke and when I took it to the dealer he said it happens all the time. Now the ABS light comes on and the vehicle wont shift out of second and the speedometer will not work when this is happening, only after driving for about 30+ minutes. Why are there no recalls when the dealerships says these things happen all the time and there are forums online with hundreds of other Blazer owner who have had the same problem.
