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

Jul 262003

Blazer 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 42,900 miles


Driving within the city I heard a clack noise and a loud noise came from the transmission, after that I couldn't use the reverse, and first gear was longer than usual, this vehicle only has 42,000 miles. I have spoken with mechanics and friends and this is a manufacturer failure with this type of vehicle, my mechanic. Told me he has to fix so far about one of those brand vehicle per month, a friend told me he purchased a Chevy Blazer and moving it from dealer he couldn't move vehicle, transmission was locked, I need the manufacturer fix my car immediately at no cost. Since I purchased vehicle took it twice because I was hearing a noise, but Chevrolet dealer said everything was fine, they couldn't fine any noise, but I heard that noise twice and a very loud and steady noice sometimes coming from the transmission after speeding in a traffic light (from red to green).
