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 #1

Mar 152004

Blazer 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 44,000 miles


Our 2001 Chevy Blazer required brake service with 44000 miles. We selected tuffy auto service centers (Warren, mi), our estimated cost was $180. During the brake service the tuffy service manager informed us that our rear brakes would require replacement, our cost for the rear was an additional $280. The service manager indicated that the rear brake disc-rotors were heavily corroded, service (rotor turning) was not an option and replacement required. Rear brake service at 44000 miles is highly unexpected, full replacement due to corrosion is unacceptable. Our assessment is that the disc-rotor material was not correctly specified (and/or perhaps a galvanic corrosion with aluminum wheels/iron hubs), the resulting excessive corrosion unexpected and a serious safety concern.
