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 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 74,000 miles


- the contact owns a 2001 Chevrolet Blazer. While driving the upper ball joint snapped and the wheel collapsed sideways, leaning towards the inside of the vehicle, but the vehicle continued to travel at 70 mph. The contact had the vehicle towed, and replaced the ball joint as well as anything that might have been damaged himself. The current mileage was 76,000 and the failure mileage was 74,000.

Not only have I had problems early with hub and bearing-- and also replaced ball bearing-- now the ABS-- manufacturers has done poor job on brake. Wheel parts- very cheap parts-- many talk about it and know that the Blazer has had problems with these parts. My family has purchased Chevy's for years-- I am now never about to purchase a Chevy again. While I pay my car payment, I always purchase new. I am always also paying for work done on this vehicle, and I am talking- over 2,000 so far and again have to go in today-- I may even trade it in I am so pissed. We also had problems with my husbands truck..I don't know what they did, or who they purchased their parts from, but surely went to cheap parts, they( Chevy) put many consumers in a bad spot. And I have written a complaint before- when I had the Chevy Blazer 2001 for a year half. They seem to want to only hear if I died cause of the failures that it would be looked into.

I have reviewed other owners complaints regarding their front suspension, fuel pump with random shut offs. My vehicle is experiencing the same and similar problems. As of today my vehicle is in the shop;I was doing 35-40 mph when vehicle just un expectedly shut off. I was stranded on a major road which cause a significant traffic delay. I have an oil leak from the hose leading to my oil filter and the vehicle pull to the right sharply if I release the steering wheel. The vehicle makes a popping sound when turning. These problems are hard to find just an isolated incident when so many consumers are having the same problems.
