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 bought this blazer for 4550 thinking I would have a nice vehicle for once that would take me a long way. I bought it in Oct of 2007 before May of 2008 I started having trouble. It overheated and I had to take it to the shop. They told me it had bad compression in 3 of the cylanders. It took about a year before I could get it fixed. My son replaced both heads. It has been running rough even after that. Every Feb I have issues with it starting and have to replace the rotor and cap. This year was no different. I have to have it towed to the shop and I have them do a compression test. Low and behold two cylanders have no compression.

Its a pain in the ass. Im a widow and don't have the man to fix vehicle problems anymore! I don't have money to spend to fix fix fix, and I don't have money to get a different one. I know to some its not much money to spend on a vehicle, but it is to me. I never spent more than 1500 on a vehicle before. Why am I having so much trouble with this one!!!! I will never buy another blazer again!
