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.

Cheap bastards @GM! used cheap metal. Just make sure folks that ride in your car don't apply too much pressure when adjusting the seat. My wife broke both sides!

This is the second seat reclining handle that broke on the driver side and the passenger side has broken once. I used a pair of pliers to adjust the seat back until I finally broke down and bought the new ones. I cannot believe that GM continued to make those cheap plastic teeth to operate on the metal cogs. I understand they have now changed and made the teeth of a different material.

Passenger side broke off at about 24,000. Under warranty and replaced. Passenger side failed again at 55,000, AND drivers side broke at 60,000. Since I use it as work vehicle, I adjusted the seat where I wanted it with a pair of pliers, and let it be--

Blazer LS

  • 30,000 miles

Seat handles broke twice... first time was at 30,000 miles, second time was at 75,000. I bought an extended warranty for $6,000 extra when I bought this thing used. At the expiration of the warranty, I had about $9,000 total of warranty repairs done, and that was with the vehicle well-maintained. (the maintenance costs were right around $5,500 to date from June 2002 when we bought it.) Ball joints, rear main seal, both axle pinion seals, front drive axel output shaft seals, intake manifold leak, several sets of oil cooler and filter hoses, wheel bearings, pitman & idler arms, relay rods, plugged heater core... there's more, but you get the picture.
