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.

Blazer 4WD

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.

While driving multi-function switch malfunctioned, causing brake lights to go out. Spoke with dealer. Consumer stated this has happened twice within 2 months, consumer was informed that the part in the multi function switch is faulty, therefore causing it to go out.

Both the brake lights and turn signals suddenly stopped working. When I took the car into the dealer, they informed me immediately that this problem was occurring on many similar vehicles. They confirmed that the problem was caused by the failure of the "multi function switch". in fact, this problem was so wide spread, the part was on "national backorder" and would not be avialable 10 days to two weeks. It appears that General Motors does not think that thousands of cars dirving around without brake lights or turn signals is a serious problem.
