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 #3

Blazer 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 58,000 miles


Tread separation on uniroyal Laredo P235/70R15 all season awr tire caused over $2,000 damage to SUV and a messed up vacation. Canister was just hanging after the failure. (canister bracket was badly damaged and hose from gas tank was disconnected.) the damage could have been very hazardous if a fire started.

Uniroyal tires have separation between the treads. The area between the treads looks like it is dry-rotted.

problem #1

Blazer 4WD

  • miles
This problem first occurred at about 4600 miles. I took the tire to have it repaired at the tire shop I use. They told me it had some belt separation. I then went to the dealership where I had purchased the vehicle and was told by the service manager to take it to Goodyear. I took it to Goodyear and they told me that since my spare tire was already on that I should keep it on and that the tire only needed a flat repair. In September 2001 I started to notice a slight thumping noise coming from my vehicle I took it back to the dealership in October 2001 they replaced a front wheel bearing and the rear differential but still the thump. They told me it was a flat spot on the tire and that I had two bad tires and needed to go back to Goodyear. The dealership told me that the other tire was bad too, not what Goodyear told me approx. 8 months earlier. I am being told these tire problems are caused by my driving. I know this is not the case, I had a Blazer 3 yrs prior to this one with a different brand of tires and not once did I have any problems. (tiresize: P235/70R15)
