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.

Blazer LS 4.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 160,213 miles


when you buy a vehicle used "as is" that's when you get trouble!!.I don't know much about overdrive- if your disabled and you don't have any money to get it fixed & mechanic wants to charge you outrageous prices....

Blazer 4.3L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 127,000 miles

If you're researching vehicles, deciding which one you want to buy, DO NOT purchase a Chevy Blazer. I thought it was a great vehicle when I purchased it with 87,000 miles. The rig started to go rotten as soon as it hit 100,000. Now, I realize every vehicle needs a little TLC with 100K on it, but the Blazer was horrendous. Between Sept. of 09 and Feb. of 2010, I spent well over 3,000 dollars trying to stop the bleeding (from water pump, fuel pump, to electrical issues)...finally the transmission went along with the radiator and stabilizer bar and I had to take the the bastard behind the barn and put a bullet in it. Bottom line--I will never even toy with the idea of buying a Chevy again. They simply don't last and are more of a headache than anything else.
