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.

problem #2

Blazer LT 4.3L V6

This was only a couple months after I bought the car, used. After this repair, I drove the car another year...just past the warranty on the transmission...It went again! The problem with this car is that a coolant line has a habit of rupturing, so the fluids mix and eat up the transmission. There has been no recalls for this problem and it has been a thorn in my side since I bought it. I have no idea how many transmissions the previous owner put in it, but this is so bad I hate to sell to anyone if I do get it fixed. These cars should have been recalled- I will NEVER buy another GM car for as long as I live.

Blazer 3.8L 6 V6

I only owned this blazer for 2 months when the transmission went, it always shifted hard but then one day it just wouldn't go above 1st gear. I replaced it for a grand total of 2,000 bucks. Then 14 months later the transmission went again. I wont be replacing it this time and have decided to junk the blazer.
