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 own a 2001 Chevy Blazer. Lost heat in Jan. 2004. Took it to dealer. They flushed the system and replaced thermostat. 3 to 4 weeks later the same thing. They cleaned out filter. 30 days later it happened again. They said the filter was clogged again. As the weather warmed up I didn't need the heat. As the colder weather approached again, used the heat 2 times and the 3 rd time the heater core went out completely. When I returned to the dealer there were about 10 other Blazer there for the same reason. They say it is our problem now. Now without heat and have to keep air conditioner on and still smell coolant inside the vehicle. If there is that many vehicles with the same problem then, I would say it was defective parts used. To replace the part is almost $200. And with labor over $600. To have to put out that kind of money on vehicle that is only 3 years old is wrong for consumers. To leave it unattended could be a health hazard, with coolant entering the inside of the vehicle.
