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.

2001 Chevrolet Blazer Owner Comments

problem #2

Apr 222004

Blazer 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 26,916 miles


Consumer heard a noise in the front of vehicle. Consumer stated he had been hearing it a little, but currently the noise became more pronounced. Consumer had already replaced the transmission once. The consumer had to fill the tires every week. The tires leaked air since purchase. The tire service dealer suggested that there was no leak and that corrosion built up on the wheels in which air escaped through the rim of tires. There was a thumping noise in the front end and seems like it happens worst on right turns, the left wheel bearing was loose in the hub bearing assembly, the hood hinges rattling excessive clearence, there was excessive slippage and the clutch burnt.

Blazer 4WD

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
I purchased my vehicle in 4/01 and seven months later I began experiencing a host of problems with my vehicle, starting with multifunction switch worn, then hood hinges worn, exhaust (muffler broken) right speaker inoperable, left front seat adjuster broken, grill assembly loose, brake pedal broken and finally transmission failure (needs replacing). I have done a bit of inquiring to other Chevy Blazer owners and found out that they have or had experience some if not all of the same problems that I am experiencing now. I am hereby respectfully requesting your assistance in rectifying this complaint. I don't think that after 11mths of purchasing my vehicle I should be needing my transmission replace. From passed experienced with replacing a transmission on my wife new vehicle (Mazda MX3) back in 1992 it has never been the same. We had been having the same problems and more with it. We were able to actually get another vehicle and the same problem keep occuring. After that long and tiring experience with my wife's car I now that this won't be no different. I have purchased a lemon and I need to know what recourse I can take to insure that I would not be stuck with a vehicle that would be costing me more to have it constantly fixed and replace. I thank you for your help and assistance in this long and tiring ordeal. I anxiously await hearing from you. Respectfully yours.
